Conspiracy theorist1 and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania Philip J. Berg should be suspended from the practice of law in Pennsylvania for a year and a day, according to the hearing committee reviewing Berg’s conduct reported on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Disciplinary Board’s web site.
Berg’s suspension recommendation is not related to his many conspiracy lawsuits against George Bush and Barack Obama, but to the mishandling of another case (see disciplinary complaint). Berg previously received sanctions in the form of a $10,000 fine and 6 hours of ethics training in a separate case.
One could only hope that all courts and bar associations were equally diligent in policing their members.
