MATTER STANLEY STURMAN (06/06/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT


June 6, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF STANLEY STURMAN, AN ATTORNEY, RESPONDENT. CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE ON DISCIPLINE OF THE ASSOCIATION OF THE BAR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, NEW YORK COUNTY LAWYERS' ASSOCIATION AND BRONX COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION, PETITIONER

Disciplinary proceedings instituted by the Co-ordinating Committee on Discipline of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, the New York County Lawyers' Association and the Bronx County Bar Association. Respondent was admitted to the Bar on November 30, 1953, at a term of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the First Judicial Department. By order entered April 5, 1967, William J. Calise, Esq., was appointed Referee to take testimony and report to this court.

Steuer, J. P., Tilzer, McGivern, Rabin and McNally, JJ., concur.

Author: Per Curiam

 Respondent was admitted to practice in the First Department in 1953. He has been charged with violating the rules of the Appellate Division regulating the conduct of attorneys by reason of his failure to file 210 statements of retainer in personal injury actions, failure to file 230 closing statements in personal injury actions where legal fees were payable on a contingent basis, compromising four infants' claims without court order, failure to maintain a special account for the deposit of settlement funds as required by our rules, and failure to preserve papers for a period of five years, all of which charges are amply sustained by the record. The Referee's report to the extent it sustains the charges is confirmed.

The said violations constitute professional misconduct. In the light of the evidence of respondent's general good reputation, his co-operation, and with due regard to the serious nature of the professional misconduct involved, we have concluded that respondent should be suspended for one year. (Matter of Kiley, 22 A.D.2d 527.)

Respondent suspended for a period of one year effective July 8, 1968.

Disposition

Respondent suspended for a period of one year effective July 8, 1968.
