REPORT OF FINDING OF PROBABLE CAUSE FOR FILING OF INFORMATION WITH COURT - GRIEVANCE COMMISSION PANEL D
Pursuant to a Stipulated Waiver of Grievance Commission Review dated October 4, 2013, a disciplinary hearing open to the public was scheduled for October 28, 2013 at l:00 p.m., with proper notice provided to all parties. The hearing was held before Grievance Panel D, consisting of James McKenna, Esq., Emilie van Eeghen, and William Baghdoyan, Esq. Panel Chair, at the Board of Overseers of the Bar in Augusta, Maine. The Board was represented by Assistant Bar Counsel Aria Eee. Attorney Miller was represented by Attorney Phillip Johnson.
Based upon the admitted exhibits and testimony presented at the hearing, pursuant to M. Bar R. 7.1, the panel concludes that there is probable cause for the Respondent's suspension or disbarment and hereby directs Bar Counsel to commence an attorney disciplinary action by filing an information with the Court pursuant to M. Bar R. 7.2(b). The panel finds that there is probable cause based both upon the Respondent's failure to properly follow through with the filing of Bankruptcy documents for his client Philip Clement, which resulted in Mr. Clement's first bankruptcy petition being dismissed, and upon the fact that misrepresentations regarding actual "wet" signatures of the bankruptcy client were made to the Bankruptcy Court by the Respondent.
