ATTORNEY DISCIPLINE BOARD

ANNUAL REPORT

January 1, 1999 - December 31, 1999

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 six lawyers and three public members (non-lawyers) appointed by the Supreme Court. A member may not serve more than two three-year terms. All members serve without compensation. The Board's chairperson and vice-chairperson are appointed to one year terms by the Supreme Court. The Board's secretary is elected by its members.

From October 1998 to September 30, 1999 the Board's composition was: Albert L. Holtz, Chairperson; Kenneth L. Lewis, Vice-Chairperson; Barbara B. Gattorn, Secretary; and members Elizabeth N. Baker, C.H. Dudley, M.D., Grant J. Gruel, Michael R. Kramer, Roger E. Winkelman and Nancy A. Wonch.

In September 1999, the Supreme Court appointed four new members to the Board to serve three year terms commencing October 1, 1999. Appointed were lawyer members Wallace D. Riley of Detroit and Theodore J. St. Antoine of Ann Arbor and lay members Dr. Diether H. Haenicke of Kalamazoo and Ronald L. Steffens of Shelby Township.

The courts, the public and the legal profession in Michigan are deeply indebted to Elizabeth N. Baker, Barbara B. Gattorn, Albert L. Holtz and Roger E. Winkelman for their dedicated service as members of the Board. Each of these individuals brought to the Board his or her unique blend of wisdom, patience, curiosity, humor, honor and common sense. Each completed their terms with the lasting respect and affection of the Board's members and staff.

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 Director; Jennifer M. Petty, Legal Assistant; Sherry Mifsud, Office Administrator; Lynn L. Saatchi, Legal Secretary; Kathy Leal-Paredes, Assignment Clerk and Jennifer M. Courts, Assignment Clerk. The Board's office and hearing room are at One K ennedy 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 three member hearing panels. The 1999 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 1999, the Board's hearing panels conducted 164 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 discip line. 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 rare 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). Final orders of discipline finding misconduct but imposing no discipline were entered in three cases in 1999.

Discipline orders must 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 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 dispo ses 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 1999, the Board held eight regularly scheduled meetings and heard oral arguments in 23 review cases. Of the 21 appeals involving orders imposing discipline, the Board affirmed the hearing panel decision in 15 cases (71%); increased discipline in four cases (19%); and remanded two cases to the hearing panel for further proceedings (10%). The Board affirmed a hearing panel order of dismissal in one case.

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 1999.

New Cases Filed

There were 165 new formal complaints filed in 1999. Of these, 132 complaints (1) contained original charges of misconduct based upon an investigation conducted by the Attorney Grievance Commission. The remaining 33 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 132 GA formal complaints filed in 1999 represent a 6% decrease from the 140 such complaints filed in 1998.
Six 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. Two new matters were 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 198 new files opened by the Board in 1999 represent an 18% decrease when compared with the 242 new cases in 1998. The following table (Table 1) illustrates the Board's annual intake of new cases during the past six years.

Table 1. New Cases Filed, 1994 - 1999.

Orders of Discipline/Dismissal

There were 147 final disposition orders issued in 1999, 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 147 final disposition orders accounted for the closure of 176 docketed complaints, including supplemental complaints for failure to answer. Orders of discipline (reprimand, suspension, and revocation and orders finding misconduct but imposing no discipline) were issued in 121 cases. A complete list of the orders of discipline issued in 1999 appears in Appendix "B." Orders of discipline issued since 1994 are illustrated in Tabl e 2, below.

Table 2. Discipline Orders Issued, 1994 - 1999.

Number of Lawyers Disciplined

A lawyer may receive more than one discipline order in a given year. In 1999, 137 lawyers accumulated 147 orders of discipline. Compared to the previous year, the number of lawyers subject to discipline increased from 131 to 137.

In 1994, the Supreme Court ruled the Board retains jurisdiction to consider misconduct during the period of licensure by attorneys whose licenses were later revoked. (3) Of the 16 lawyers whose licenses were revoked in 1999, three were the subject of two or more revocation orders during the calendar 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. Forty two consent orders were approved in 1999, accounting for 30% of the discipline orders issued.
Three attorneys consented to disbarment and 18 attorneys consented to suspensions ranging from 30 days to five years. The 21 consent orders of reprimand approved during the year accounted for 64% of all reprimands issued in 1999.
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 38% 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 are recorded in a separate category. Those cases accounted for an additional 4% of all discipline orders issued in 1999.
The next largest category of misconduct, accounting for 13% of all discipline orders, resulted from an attorney's criminal conviction. The 19 criminal convictions included five convictions for the possession or distribution of controlled substances, four convictions involving fraud or embezzlement, three automobile related offenses (including impaired driving), and two convictions based upon an attorney's violation of the Internal Revenue Code as well as five other convictions in various other categories.
Other types of misconduct resulting in discipline in 1999 included improper handling of client funds (5%), misrepresentation to a tribunal (4%), conflicts of interest (3%), and violation of a prior discipline order (2%).
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 three 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 five years.
Six reinstatement petitions were filed with the Board and assigned to panels for hearing in 1999. The Board or its panels issued nine orders reinstating attorneys whose licenses had been suspended for terms greater than six months.
Pending Case Load

As of December 31, 1999, there were a total of 158 open discipline or reinstatement cases pending before a hearing panel, the Attorney Discipline Board or the Michigan Supreme Court, as follows:

Funding and Expenses

The Attorney Discipline Board receives no public funds. Michigan's attorney discipline system (Attorney Discipline Board and Attorney Grievance Commission) 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 under the age of 70 pay mandatory annual dues of $260, of which $100 (38%) is specifically allocated for deposit in the Attorney Discipline Syste m Fund. For the fiscal year which ended September 30, 1999, the Attorney Discipline System had total revenue of $3,279,406 and total expenses of $3,075,744.
During the fiscal year 1998 - 1999, the Board's total expenses were $698,850 (29% of the combined expenses of the Discipline Board and Grievance Commission). The Board's receipts from reimbursed transcript costs and copying charges amounted to $53,957, leaving net expenses of $644,893. This figure represented an increase of 3.0% compared to the previous fiscal year. A chart summarizing the Board's expenses for 1998 - 1999 is included below (Table 3). A complete itemization of the Board's approved budget and actual expenses is attached to this report as Appendix D.
