In re Smith, Esq., 2014 VT 77 (mem.)
By Jeffrey M. Messina
The usual wit and banter is laid aside here. Regardless of the reasoning, the outcome is nothing to laugh about.
In June 2014, the Vermont Professional Responsibility Board recommended disbarring the Respondent effective as of a previous date of suspension approximately a year prior. Respondent did not appeal and SCOV, by its own motion, declined review.
