Maryland Attorney Faces 90-Day Suspension Over “Robo-Signing”

Maryland Attorney Faces 90-Day Suspension Over “Robo-Signing”

The Maryland Court of Appeals has found that an attorney violated three ethics rules (including failure to discharge supervisory obligations) where he allowed non-attorney employees to “robo-sign” and notarize “his” signature on foreclosure documents.

The court imposed a suspension of 90 days in light of his lenghty career without prior discipline and the extensive post-misconduct steps that he took to emedy the misconduct.
