The Minnesota Supreme Court issued one decision (really, a brief order) last week on attorney discipline and ethics.

A14-1035, In re Petition for Reinstatement of Christopher C. Greenman, a Minnesota Attorney,Registration No. 0349719.

Attorney Greenman voluntarily resigned from the practice of law in September 2011, and then filed a petition for reinstatement on June 19, 2014.  The Court, adopting the recommendation of a panel from the Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board, found that petitioner has proven by clear and convincing evidence his ethical fitness and competence to practice law and has met all of the conditions for reinstatement.  Accordingly, the Minnesota Supreme Court reinstated the petitioner to the practice of law in Minnesota.
