Supreme Court Suspends Wrong Lawyer
by Howard Haykin
The Associated Press reports that the Supreme Court suspended a prominent Massachusetts lawyer and threatened him with disbarment, only to learn 2 weeks later that it had the wrong guy. “MISTAKEN IDENTITY.”
THE WRONG, ‘INNOCENT’ GUY. Christopher Patrick Sullivan, a partner with the Robins Kaplan firm in Boston and the incoming president of the Massachusetts Bar Association.
THE DISCIPLINARY TARGET. Christopher P. Sullivan, who’s in prison in Vermont, following his conviction for drunken driving that resulted in the death of a 71-year-old woman in 2013. This Sullivan’s middle name is Paul.
The mix-up arose from a disciplinary notice the court received from a NYS court concerning a Christopher P. Sullivan. Adding to the oddity is the fact that both attorneys went to Fordham Law in New York.
Kathy Arberg, a spokesperson for the Supreme Court, noted that this was not the first case of mistaken identity, though she could provide no details.
