Silver Bay, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A Silver Bay attorney has been publicly reprimanded and put on two years of supervised probation by the Minnesota Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board.

The board alleges that Patrick Scott Dinneen represented a client with interests directly opposed to his current clients.

The petition alleges that Dinneen filed an unsigned affidavit without letting his client know about the fact that he was filing it or the topics addressed in the document.

The board also accuses Dinneen of knowingly making false statements to the court.
