Supreme Court set to rule on former Doyle legal counsel’s disciplinary case

Gov. Jim Doyle’s chief legal counsel and deputy chief of staff will soon learn if he’ll have his law license suspended for a second time because of misconduct.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to release its decision in the Office of Lawyer Regulation’s case against Stanley Davis of The Davis Group on Thursday.

The OLR filed a complaint against Davis in December, alleging he had taken clients’ money without doing work he had promised. He could lose his law license for six months and have to pay $15,000 in restitution for the 11 misconduct violations.

According to the State Bar of Wisconsin’s records, Davis’ Wisconsin law license is currently suspended for disciplinary and administrative reasons.

The high court is also scheduled to announce punishment for the Milwaukee attorney Diane Caspari. Caspari previously lost her law license for 60 days in 2016 for overbilling and lying to the State Public Defender’s Office, and she was privately reprimanded for failing to refund money to a client in 2015.
