Wisconsin Supreme Court
Professional Responsibility — public reprimand
Where attorney Eric S. Brittain twice engaged in behavior that disrupted court, a public reprimand is appropriate.
“Attorney Brittain filed an answer on July 24, 2012. On December 28, 2012, the OLR and Attorney Brittain entered into a stipulation whereby Attorney Brittain admitted the allegations in the OLR’s complaint. The stipulation noted that the OLR was requesting that this court publicly reprimand Attorney Brittain. Attorney Brittain indicated he did not oppose the OLR’s recommendation. On January 11, 2013, the referee entered an order approving the stipulation and recommending that the court publicly reprimand Attorney Brittain for his professional misconduct.”
