WI Supreme Court

Case Name: Office of Lawyer Regulation v. Walter W. Stern, III,

Case No.: 2021 WI 84

Focus: Attorney Disciplinary Proceedings

We review a report filed by Referee Jean A. DiMotto, recommending the court suspend Attorney Walter W. Stern, III’s license to practice law for a period of 45 days for three counts of professional misconduct. No appeal has been filed so we consider this matter pursuant to Supreme Court Rule (SCR) 22.17(2).

We approve and adopt the referee’s findings of fact and conclusions of law. We conclude that the seriousness of Attorney Stern’s misconduct warrants a 60-day license suspension, and we impose the full costs of this proceeding on Attorney Stern. The OLR did not seek restitution in this matter and no restitution is ordered.
