MATTER SIDNEY R. WARREN (ADMITTED AS SIDNEY R. WOLGEL) (06/18/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT


June 18, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF SIDNEY R. WARREN (ADMITTED AS SIDNEY R. WOLGEL), 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 May 17, 1937, at a term of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the First Judicial Department. By order entered December 26, 1967, Daniel Gutman, Esq., was appointed Referee to take testimony and report to this court.

Botein, P. J., Eager, Capozzoli, Rabin and McNally, JJ., concur.

Author: Per Curiam

 Respondent, who was admitted to the Bar in the First Department in 1937, converted two unrelated escrow funds of former clients. On December 6, 1951, respondent was advised in writing by the Committee on Grievances that it disapproved of his personal use of escrow funds and the issuance of worthless checks. On March 2, 1966, respondent was admonished by petitioner's Committee on Grievances for engaging in a course of conduct of issuing 147 worthless checks. Despite the warning and admonition respondent subsequent to March, 1966 issued many worthless checks. The Referee's report of respondent's guilt on each of the charges of professional misconduct is amply established by the evidence and is confirmed. The respondent should be disbarred. (See Matter of Berkson, 282 App. Div. 265.)

Respondent disbarred effective July 18, 1968.

Disposition

Respondent disbarred effective July 18, 1968.
