MATTER THOMAS F. GORDON (07/01/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT


July 1, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF THOMAS F. GORDON, AN ATTORNEY, RESPONDENT. BROOKLYN BAR ASSOCIATION, PETITIONER

Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Benjamin, Munder and Martuscello, JJ., concur.

In our opinion, these findings were established by the admissions in respondent's answer to the petition and by the proof at the hearing; we therefore confirm the report as to these findings, as requested in petitioner's motion. It is as to a further finding in connection with the fourth charge that petitioner asks disaffirmance. That finding is that the "failure" of the client (who had moved to Florida in 1954) "to make inquiry of respondent for substantial periods of time contributed in some measure to respondent's neglect in the prosecution of this claim." We are in agreement with petitioner that this finding was not warranted by the record and therefore we disaffirm the report as to it. Petitioner's motion is granted in all respects. Respondent should be, and he hereby is, suspended from the practice of law for a period of one year, commencing July 20, 1968.
