REPORT OF FINDINGS AND ORDER OF PANEL E OF THE GRIEVANCE COMMISSION
Pursuant to a Disciplinary Petition filed on February 4, 2013, a stipulated disciplinary hearing open to the public was held on May 28, 2013 at 9:00a.m., at the Cumberland County Superior Court in Portland, Maine, with proper notice provided to all parties. The members of Grievance Panel E were present. Attorney Miller was represented by Attorney Phillip Johnson and the Board was represented by Assistant Bar Counsel Aria Eee. Complainant Stev Parker, Esq. was in attendance at the hearing along with Eric Wright, Esq., from the Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection. Prior to the disciplinary proceeding, the parties had submitted a stipulated, proposed sanction Report for the Grievance Commission Panel's review and consideration. Attorney Parker and Attorney Wright provided comments and addressed the Panel concerning the parties' proposed Report.
Taking all of the proffered evidence and comments presented at the hearing in the light most favorable to the stipulated proposed disposition, the Panel is unable to conclude that a Dismissal with a Warning is the appropriate disposition of this matter. Accordingly, pursuant to Maine Bar Rule 7.1(d)(5), the office of Bar Counsel will prepare and present a formal petition for disciplinary proceedings before a different panel of the Grievance Commission. Those proceedings shall take place pursuant to Bar Rule 7.1(e). The Board Clerk will reset this case for hearing, and at a later date, the parties will receive advance notice of the time and place of the hearing.
Victoria Powers, Esq., Chair For GCF Panel E
