Reprimand issued in CT, 2007
updated on 11/11/2021
A reprimand is an order from the Statewide Grievance Committee after it has found that an attorney has engaged in ethical misconduct. If an attorney receives more than 3 reprimands in 5 years, a presentment must be filed against the attorney so the Superior Court can decide if more serious discipline should be ordered.
Myles's comment: “This "reprimand" is a badge of honor. In a decade-long superfund case we represented the many dozens of impacted families. We obtained justice for our clients. Before we obtained justice, there were threats from the then sitting governor (later jailed) and a dismissal of the case (reversed by the Connecticut Supreme Court). A judge was offended by our accurate report to our clients during that case, and the reprimand followed. I was later elected chair of the CBA Prof. Discipline Section.”
