Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Minnesota Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended a Duluth attorney after being slapped with a petition over professional misconduct.
The Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility filed a petition for action against Louis Stockman alleging he failed to respond to opposing counsel, made false statements regarding his compliance and contracted for legal advertising in various phone books that would be distributed during his suspension.
The Supreme Court ruling allows Stockman to re-apply for a license to practice law after six months.
He must also pay a $900 fine.
Stockman has been practicing law in Duluth since 1993.
