Supremes slap State Bar over discipline in $493K ripoff
March 15, 2010 --

The Georgia Supreme Court today told the State Bar it was too easy on a lawyer who took $493,000 from his employer. The court rejected a six- to 12-month suspension for Michael J.C. Shaw. The Bar’s recommendation miffed Justice David Nahmias, who wrote that he believes most lawyers and “almost every citizen in this State would be equally disturbed by that concept of attorney discipline.”
