Docket No.: BAR-16-8

Issued by: Maine Supreme Judicial Court

Date: May 18, 2016

Respondent: Seth T. Carey, Esq.

Bar Number: 009970

Order: Order

Disposition/Conduct: Order directing Bar Counsel to file Information with the Court


After review of the record created before the Grievance Panel, and after considering the arguments presented by Bar Counsel Scott Davis and by Attorney Seth Carey, I determine that the testimony of four jurists that Attorney Seth Carey is not competent to practice law establishes probable cause that this matter could "be concluded by suspension or disbarment." Therefore, pursuant to M. Bar R. 13(f)(5), I direct Bar Counsel to file an Information, and further direct that the matter be conducted as an attorney discipline action in accordance with Rule 13(g).
