MATTER RONALD HOFFMAN (06/18/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT


June 18, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF RONALD HOFFMAN, AN ATTORNEY, RESPONDENT. ASSOCIATION OF THE BAR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, PETITIONER

Disciplinary proceedings instituted by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. Respondent was admitted to the Bar on October 19, 1955, at a term of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Second Judicial Department. By order entered October 31, 1967, Daniel Gutman, Esq., was appointed Referee to take testimony and report to this court.

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

Author: Per Curiam

 This is a motion to confirm the report of the Referee sustaining charges of professional misconduct preferred against respondent.

Respondent was admitted to practice in the Second Judicial Department in 1955. Proceedings were instituted against him on September 29, 1967. He was charged in seven counts with forging clients' endorsements to settlement checks and converting the clients' shares of the proceeds and in an eighth count with having engaged in a course of conduct of issuing worthless checks. The Referee found all of the charges to have been sustained.

The Referee's findings are fully supported by the evidence and the report is confirmed.

The respondent has been guilty of professional misconduct which demonstrates his unfitness to continue as a member of the Bar. (Matter of Reape, 27 A.D.2d 275.) He should be disbarred.

Respondent disbarred effective July 18, 1968.

Disposition

Respondent disbarred effective July 18, 1968.
