ATTORNEY GRIEVANCE COMMISSION
 

ANNUAL REPORT
 

January 1, 1998 - December 31, 1998




The Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission was created by the Supreme Court, effective October 1, 1978. Along with the simultaneously created Attorney Discipline Board, the Commission succeeded the former State Bar Grievance Board. Pursuant to MCR 9.108(A), the Commission is the prosecution arm of the Supreme Court for the discharge of its constitutional responsibility to supervise and discipline Michigan attorneys. The Commission, which has statewide jurisdiction, has its offices in the Marquette Building, 243 West Congress, Suite 256, Detroit, Michigan, 48226. All Commission members are appointed by the Michigan Supreme Court. The Supreme Court also appoints the Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Commission, pursuant to MCR 9.108(C). The Secretary of the Commission is elected by the Commission.
 

STAFF

Both the Grievance Administrator and the Deputy Administrator are appointed by the Michigan Supreme Court. Under MCR 9.109(A), the Grievance Administrator is responsible for the appointment of the staff. Under the current budget which became effective October 1, 1998, the number of full-time staffing positions is 34. In addition to the full-time staff, the Commission has been accredited by the three Detroit area law schools for a legal intern program. Law students who are accepted for participation in the program earn academic credit for their service to the Commission. This program has proven to be extremely beneficial to the participating students and the Commission's legal staff who depend on the students for assistance with research and writing.
 

COMMISSION PROCEDURE

Subchapter 9.100 of the Michigan Court Rules governs the conduct of attorney disciplinary proceedings.

Grievances filed against attorneys are denominated "requests for investigation." Any person may file a request for investigation with the Grievance Administrator, and the Grievance Administrator may file his/her own request for investigation, when necessary. The filing of a request for investigation is normally the first step in the grievance process.

Following the filing of a request for investigation, the Grievance Administrator must determine whether there exists a prima facie allegation of professional misconduct, i.e. a violation of MCR 9.104. The Grievance Administrator may reject the request for investigation on its face or after a preliminary investigation, or may conduct a full investigation. Following the conclusion of the investigation, the Grievance Administrator recommends to the Commission that (1) the matter be closed as there is no provable evidence of professional misconduct sufficient to sustain the burden of proof at a disciplinary proceeding; (2) the respondent attorney be placed on contractual probation pursuant to MCR 9.114 and 9.115; (3) the matter be closed with the issuance of an admonition; or (4) authorization be granted for the issuance of a formal complaint. At one of its monthly meetings, the Commission determines the appropriate action.

During 1998, 3,935 requests for investigation were filed. (See attachments for a breakdown of the types of legal matters referred to in the requests for investigation filed in 1998.) A listing of the various types of legal cases underlying these requests for investigation and the nature of the allegations of misconduct is appended. Total dispositions for 1998 were 3,796. During the year, 1,358 cases (35.8% of dispositions), were rejected by the Administrator under MCR 9.112(C)(1)(a) and 9.114(A). An additional 1,676 cases (44.2%) were closed by the Commission pursuant to MCR 9.114(A)(2). The Commission issued 179 (4.7%) confidential admonishments, and authorized the filing of a formal complaint with the Attorney Discipline Board in 241 (6.3%) cases. The Commission closed 342 (9.0%) files with cautionary letters.
 

VOLUNTEER INVESTIGATORS

In addition to its full-time professional staff, the Commission maintains a roster of approximately 175 volunteer investigators. They are members of the State Bar of Michigan who perform pro bono services on behalf of the Commission, and who are reimbursed only for actual out-of-pocket expenses. Their function is to conduct on-site investigation in the field; to develop an investigation which commenced at staff level; and to report back to the staff counsel responsible for the investigation, who will then assess the matter and submit a recommendation to the Grievance Administrator.

In addition, many of these volunteer investigators serve as arbitrators in fee disputes between attorneys and their clients who consent to that procedure, as provided in MCR 9.130(B).
 

FORMAL PROCEEDINGS

Upon authorization by members of the Commission, a formal complaint is filed with the Attorney Discipline Board. A different procedure, set forth in MCR 9.120(B)(3), is generally used in the cases in which an attorney has been convicted of a crime. In those cases, an order to show cause is issued at the request of the Grievance Administrator requiring the respondent to show cause why discipline should not be imposed. This procedure, and a companion provision providing for the automatic interim suspension for felony convictions, has been in effect since February 1, 1983. MCR 9.120(A) requires a lawyer who is convicted of a crime, as well as the prosecutor and the defense attorney, to report the conviction to the Grievance Administrator and to the Attorney Discipline Board.

In 1998, 209 formal complaints were filed. A total of 12 judgment of conviction proceedings were instituted pursuant to MCR 9.120 and 1 reciprocal disciplinary action was filed. The Grievance Administrator acts as the prosecutor in these proceedings. Hearings on charges of misconduct are held before three-lawyer hearing panels of the Attorney Discipline Board. The hearings are open to the public.

In hearings on a formal complaint, the Grievance Administrator is required to prove his case by a preponderance of the evidence. The respondent may retain counsel, cross-examine witnesses called by the Grievance Administrator, and present evidence in his or her own behalf, both in defense and in mitigation. The practice and procedure employed in non-jury civil cases are generally applicable to disciplinary proceedings, as are the Michigan Rules of Evidence.

Upon conclusion of a hearing, if the panel finds that the Grievance Administrator has failed to prove misconduct by a preponderance of the evidence, the case against the respondent must be dismissed. If the panel concludes that professional misconduct has been established, the panel must enter an order of discipline, which may consist of a reprimand, probation, suspension or disbarment. A suspension or disbarment disqualifies the respondent from the practice of law, whereas a reprimand is in the nature of a public censure. Probation is the equivalent of a supervised reprimand and is available only under limited circumstances. In Michigan, discipline imposed as a result of formal proceedings is a matter of public record. An admonishment issued by the Commission is confidential and is an administrative warning not constituting discipline.

In hearings on an order to show cause pursuant to MCR 9.120(B)(3), the respondent has the initial burden of going forward and may present evidence in mitigation. However, the respondent is precluded from attempting to collaterally attack the criminal conviction that is the basis of the order to show cause.

Any party, including the complainant who filed the request for investigation, has a right to appeal an order of a hearing panel to the Attorney Discipline Board, and may seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court from an order of the Attorney Discipline Board.
 

FUNDING

The Attorney Grievance Commission is funded entirely by a yearly assessment paid by each Michigan lawyer to fund the disciplinary system. The yearly assessment is set by the Michigan Supreme Court. In the fiscal year ending on September 30, 1998, the Commission's actual expenditures were $2,375,719.

STATE OF MICHIGAN

ATTORNEY DISCIPLINE BOARD

ANNUAL REPORT

January 1, 1998 - December 31, 1998




Organization and Composition

The Attorney Discipline Board is the adjudicative arm of the Michigan Supreme Court for the discharge of the Court's exclusive constitutional responsibility to supervise and discipline Michigan attorneys. The Board, along with its prosecutorial counterpart, the Attorney Grievance Commission, is part of the bifurcated system of discipline described in Chapter 9.100 of the Michigan Court Rules.

The Attorney Discipline Board consists of 6 lawyers and 3 public members (nonlawyers) appointed by the Supreme Court. A member may not serve more than 2 three-year terms. All members serve without compensation. The Board's chairperson and vice-chairperson are appointed by the Supreme Court. The Board's secretary is elected by its members.

Members of the Attorney Discipline Board in 1998 were: Elizabeth N. Baker, C. H. Dudley, Barbara B. Gattorn, Grant J. Gruel, Albert L. Holtz, Michael R. Kramer, Kenneth L. Lewis, Roger E. Winkelman and Nancy A. Wonch.
 

Staff

Michigan Court Rule 9.110 authorizes the Attorney Discipline Board to appoint an attorney as its counsel. The Board's full-time staff consists of John F. Van Bolt, Executive Director and General Counsel; Mark A. Armitage, Associate Counsel; Margaret Lucas Agius, Legal Assistant; Susan C. Lindeman, Office Manager; Lynn L. Harkins, Secretary; Sherry L. Mifsud, Assignment Clerk and Susan D. Duncan, Assignment Clerk. The Board's offices and hearing room are at One Kennedy Square, 719 Griswold Street, Suite 1910, Detroit, MI 48226.
 

Hearing Panels

The Board maintains a current roster of over 450 attorneys appointed annually to serve on 3 member hearing panels. The 1998 hearing panelist roster is attached as Appendix "C". The Board has continued its efforts to appoint attorneys as panel members who represent a broad range of professional experience. With the cooperation of the Women Lawyers Association and the Wolverine Bar Association, and other special interest bar associations, the Board actively encourages the participation of women and minorities in Michigan's discipline system.

Upon the filing of a formal complaint, judgment of conviction or petition for reinstatement, the matter is assigned to a hearing panel. Proceedings before a panel are open to the public and are conducted under the Michigan Court Rules applicable to a civil trial in a circuit court and the Michigan Rules of Evidence. During 1998, the Board's hearing panels conducted 277 public hearings.

Complaints submitted by clients, judges or other lawyers regarding an attorney's conduct are investigated by the Grievance Administrator and his or her staff under the supervision of the Attorney Grievance Commission, a separate agency. If formal disciplinary proceedings are authorized by the Commission, the charges of misconduct are set forth in a formal complaint filed by the Administrator. The charges in the complaint must be established by a preponderance of the evidence. If the charges of misconduct are not established, the panel must enter an order of dismissal. Upon a finding of misconduct, the panel must conduct a separate phase of the hearing to determine the appropriate discipline. The levels of discipline provided in the court rules are reprimand, probation, license suspension and license revocation (disbarment). In a discipline matter decided July 15, 1997, the Supreme Court held that under certain circumstances, a finding of professional misconduct may result in an order of discipline which effectively imposes no discipline on the attorney. Grievance Administrator v Deutch, 455 Mich 149, 163 (1997).

Discipline orders include an assessment of costs incurred by the Grievance Commission and Discipline Board, and may include an order of restitution to an aggrieved client. Orders of reprimand or suspension may include additional conditions relevant to the established misconduct, including legal education, reformation of law office practices and personal counseling.

Unless appealed within 21 days, an order of discipline entered by a hearing panel constitutes a final order and may be enforced in civil contempt proceedings instituted by the Grievance Administrator.
 

Appeals

The respondent, the Grievance Administrator or the complainant may petition the Attorney Discipline Board for a review of an order entered by a hearing panel. The Board's review in such cases is based upon the record presented to the hearing panel and the written and oral arguments presented by the parties on appeal. Following its review, the Board may enter an order affirming, reversing or modifying the panel's order. In addition, the Board regularly considers and disposes of various motions seeking stays of discipline, extensions of time to pay costs, consolidation or severance of pending matters and the institution of show cause proceedings for alleged violations of discipline orders.

During 1998, the Board held 10 regularly scheduled meetings and heard oral arguments in 47 review cases. Of the 35 appeals involving orders imposing discipline, the Board affirmed the hearing panel decision in 15 cases (43%); increased discipline in 9 cases (26%); decreased discipline in 9 cases (26%); and remanded 2 cases to the hearing panel for further proceedings (5%). The Board heard 10 appeals from hearing panel orders of dismissal. In those cases, the Board affirmed the hearing panel dismissal in 8 cases. In 2 cases, the Board reversed the hearing panel's dismissal and remanded for further proceedings.

The Board considered 2 appeals in reinstatement cases. The Board affirmed 1 hearing panel order denying reinstatement and remanded one matter for further proceedings.
 

Summary of Disclosure Requests

There were no motions for disclosure filed with the Board pursuant to MCR 9.126(D)(7) or MCR 9.126(E)(5) during 1998.
 

New Cases Filed

There were 209 new formal complaints filed in 1998. Of these, 140 complaints(1) contained original charges of misconduct based upon an investigation conducted by the Attorney Grievance Commission. The remaining 69 formal complaints(2) were based solely upon the failure of the respondent/attorney to answer the initial formal complaint, a separate violation under MCR 9.104(7). Such complaints are consolidated for hearing before the panel to which the original complaint has been assigned. The 140 GA formal complaints filed in 1998 represent a 20% decrease from the 175 such complaints filed in 1997.

Sixteen new files were opened upon the filing of petitions for reinstatement in accordance with MCR 9.123(B). An additional 12 cases were commenced under MCR 9.120 with the filing of a judgment of conviction establishing that an attorney had been convicted of a crime. One new matter was commenced with the filing of a petition seeking reciprocal discipline in accordance with MCR 9.104 as the result of a discipline order issued in another jurisdiction.

The 242 new files opened by the Board in 1998 represent an 24% decrease when compared with the 318 new cases in 1997. The following table (Table 1) illustrates the Board's annual intake of new cases during the past 6 years. (Unable to convert Table 1 to HTML.)
 

Orders of Discipline/Dismissal

There were 205 final disposition orders issued in 1998, including orders of discipline, dismissal, transferring an attorney to inactive status and granting or denying reinstatement. Because some of these orders involved two or more consolidated complaints, the 205 final disposition orders accounted for the closure of 314 docketed complaints, including supplemental complaints for failure to answer. Orders of discipline (probation, reprimand, suspension and revocation) were issued in 152 cases. A complete list of the orders of discipline issued in 1998 appears in Appendix "B". Orders of discipline issued since 1993 are illustrated in Table 2, below.  (Unable to convert Table 2 to HTML.)
 

Number of Lawyers Disciplined

A lawyer may receive more than one discipline order in a given year. In 1998, 131 lawyers accumulated 152 orders of discipline ranging from probation to disbarment. Compared to the previous year, the number of lawyers subject to discipline decreased from 125 to 131.

In 1994, the Supreme Court ruled that the Board retains jurisdiction to consider misconduct during the period of licensure by attorneys whose licenses were later revoked.(3) Of the 29 lawyers whose licenses were revoked in 1998, 6 were the subject of 2 or more revocation orders during the calendar year. The 29 lawyers whose licenses were revoked in 1998 accounted for 41 orders of discipline, or 27% of the final orders of discipline during that year.
 

Discipline By Consent

The respondent and the Grievance Administrator may enter into a stipulation for a consent order of discipline after a formal complaint has been filed. This procedure, described in MCR 9.115(F)(5), allows the respondent to admit the charges in the complaint, or plead no contest, in exchange for a stated form of discipline. The stipulation must be approved by both the Attorney Grievance Commission and a hearing panel. Thirty-eight consent orders were approved in 1998, accounting for 25% of the discipline orders issued.
 

Misconduct Resulting In Discipline

As in prior years, neglect of client matters was the single largest category of professional misconduct resulting in discipline, accounting for 41% of the discipline orders issued. Such neglect ranged from failure to provide competent or diligent representation on behalf of a single client to, in some cases, complete abandonment of an attorney's practice.

For statistical purposes, cases involving neglect of client matters coupled with an attorney's false statement to the client or to the Grievance Administrator were recorded in a separate category. Those cases accounted for an additional 8% of all discipline orders issued in 1998.

The next largest category of misconduct, misuse of client funds ranging from inadvertent commingling to outright embezzlement, accounted for 13% of all discipline orders. Of the 18 discipline orders involving commingling or misappropriation of client funds, 11 cases resulted in disbarment.

Other types of misconduct resulting in discipline in 1998 were criminal convictions--8% and violations of a prior discipline order--4%.
 

Reinstatements

Attorneys suspended for 179 days or less are automatically reinstated upon the filing of an affidavit of compliance with the Supreme Court. In cases of revocation or suspensions of 180 days or more, the attorney must file a petition for reinstatement which is followed by an investigation and a hearing before a panel to determine his or her fitness to re-enter the practice of law. Attorneys suspended for 3 years or more must undergo examination and recertification by the Michigan Board of Law Examiners. In Michigan, a disbarred attorney may petition for reinstatement after 5 years.

Sixteen reinstatement petitions were filed with the Board and assigned to panels for hearing in 1998. The Board or its panels issued 18 orders reinstating attorneys whose licenses had been suspended for terms greater than 6 months. Reinstatement petitions were denied or dismissed in 4 cases.
 

Pending Case Load

As of December 31, 1998, there were a total of 153 open discipline or reinstatement cases pending before a hearing panel, the Attorney Discipline Board or the Michigan Supreme Court, as follows:
 
Pending 12/31/98 Pending 12/31/97
Supreme Court:  18  10
Attorney Discipline Board:  25  28
Hearing Panels: 110 164
153 202

 

Funding

The Attorney Discipline Board receives no public funds. Michigan's attorney discipline system is funded entirely by the State Bar of Michigan which derives its income primarily from the dues assessed against its members. Under the current dues structure approved by the Supreme Court, Michigan lawyers pay mandatory annual dues of $260, of which $100 (38%) is specifically allocated for attorney discipline.

For the fiscal year which ended September 30, 1998, the Board's total expenses were $687,895.(4) The Board's receipts from reimbursed transcript costs and copying charges amounted to $62,050, leaving net expenses of $625,845. This figure represented a decrease of 1.2% compared to the previous fiscal year.
