Attorney's Willful Failure to Pay Income Taxes Is Not a "Serious Crime"and Thus Does Not Justify Disbarment
From Howard Bashman:
Attorney's willful failure to pay income taxes did not justify order disbarring him from practice in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Fourth Circuit panel rules: Today's ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit -- holding that willful failure to pay income taxes is not a "serious crime" -- can be accessed here [In Re: John Ashton Wray, No. 05-1106 (4th Cir. Dec. 29, 2005)].
