Wisconsin Supreme Court
Professional Responsibility — suspension
Where the misconduct of attorney John R. Dade occurred more than five years before disciplinary proceedings were filed, a 90-day suspension is appropriate.
“Given the referee’s factual findings, we further agree with the referee that Attorney Dade’s professional misconduct requires that his license to practice law in Wisconsin be suspended for a period of 90 days. Attorney Dade has not objected to the statement of costs filed by the OLR, and we conclude that he should be required to pay the full amount of costs in this disciplinary proceeding. Finally, we agree with the referee’s recommendation that, as a condition of the reinstatement of his license to practice law, Attorney Dade be required to complete six CLE credits in law office management, to be approved by the OLR.”
