  • It also should be mentioned that he lost his right to practice law in Iowa and Nebraska. Supreme Court of Iowa decision on May 23, 2014 - https://www.casemine.com/judgement/us/5e9e83c84653d06848c06d7b and in the Supreme Court of Nebraska on October 21, 2011 - https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ne-supreme-court/1583421.html. The Nebraska Supreme Court held: "Misappropriation alone is presumptive grounds for disbarment, but here it is aggravated by an apparent attempt to conceal what had occurred from the clients and from the Counsel for Discipline. Viewed in its entirety, Carter's conduct indicates a lack of concern for the protection of the public, the profession, and the administration of justice.17 On this record, we cannot conclude that there are extraordinary mitigating circumstances which would justify departure from the general rule that a lawyer's misappropriation of client funds should result in disbarment. Upon due consideration, we conclude that disbarment is the appropriate sanction."

  • conroy.kim1 don't forget to mention in your attempt to diminish my positive accomplishments and commitment to the community that the incident to which you are referring occurred over ten years ago. The story was published on the AP wire and distributed across the United States. (which is very usual), so what concealment are you referring to? Also do not forget to mention that I have become eligible for reinstatement to practice law. Pour your salt, make your bias rants. You cannot hinder what God has ordained to be so. I have dealt with negative forces, attitudes and bias all of my life, many of which are much larger than you. Thank you for acknowledging that I am such an influence in your life, that you must do whatever you can to minimize what I have become. "No weapon formed against me shall prosper." I do not expect a person of your character to understand that statement.
