Longwood, Florida Lawyer Suspended
You remember Albert Ford, II, he's the Florida lawyer caught on video trashing his former client's house. He was quite the sensation on Bad Lawyer back in July , at the link you can link to the story with the video. The Supreme Court of Florida has issued an emergency suspension, this is reporter Jeff Weiner's update for the Orlando Sentinel:
"A Longwood lawyer arrested in July on charges of burglarizing the home of a former client has been suspended by the Florida Supreme Court, The Florida Bar announced Tuesday. Albert E. Ford II was arrested after police said he burglarized the home of Kasee Singh, a former client. Documents show Ford and Singh were locked in a dispute over fees.
'According to a petition for emergency suspension,' The Florida Bar said in a statement Tuesday, 'Ford appeared to be causing great public harm by engaging in threatening behavior toward a former client.'
Florida Bar spokeswoman Karen Kirksey said Ford's suspension will remain in effect 'until further order.' Police say Ford, who specialized in environmental and land-use issues, was caught on surveillance video damaging Singh's Lake Mary house. Ford also sent Singh threatening text messages, police say."
I confess, personally, to feeling low of spirit, so pardon me if I do not keep the pace I set in August. I'll have some personal posts about directions and the path to wisdom not that I ever had much myself. But I'm getting there. Slowly.
