A lawyer with admission to practice in Wisconsin and Iowa received a one-year suspension of his Wisconsin license, despite being inactive but in good standing.
Scott Fisher will have to wait until April 2023 before he can practice in Wisconsin again. The disciplinary matter comes after the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation filed a complaint in November over Fischer’s failure to report Iowa’s previous decision to suspend his license.
The Iowa Supreme Court suspended his license for one year in October after finding that Fisher had violated the Iowa Rules of Professional Conduct along with committing misconduct involving six other client matters. The complaint against Fischer accused him of revealing the confidential information of former clients on the Internet, making false statements, making frivolous filings, improperly withdrawing from a case, engaging in conduct prejudicial to justice and failing to cooperate with the Iowa Supreme Court Attorney Disciplinary Board.
Fischer did not contest the allegations or the reciprocal discipline imposed by the OLR and Wisconsin Supreme Court.
