Attorney Discipline Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Agati, Taryn


AC45766 - Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel v. Vaccaro ("In this presentment matter, the respondent attorney, Enrico Vaccaro, appeals from the judgment of the trial court disciplining him after the Statewide Grievance Committee (grievance committee) directed the petitioner, the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel (disciplinary counsel), to file a presentment pursuant to Practice Book ยง 2-47 (d) (1) for the purpose of imposing appropriate discipline. On appeal, the respondent claims that the court (1) erred by failing to consider that the delay in the underlying disciplinary proceedings violated his due process rights and (2) abused its discretion by suspending him from the practice of law for a period of ninety days. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
