MATTER EUGENE J. ROBSON (11/21/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT


November 21, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF EUGENE J. ROBSON, 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 June 25, 1946, at a term of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the First Judicial Department. By order entered October 31, 1967, George Trosk, Esq., was appointed Referee to take testimony and report to this court.

Stevens, J. P., Eager, Capozzoli, McGivern and Rabin, JJ., concur.

Author: Per Curiam

 This is a motion to confirm the report of a Referee finding respondent guilty of professional misconduct.

Respondent, age 52, was admitted to practice June 25, 1946 in the First Judicial Department. He was charged with attempting to obtain money from a client in order to pay an unlawful fee to an employee of the State Liquor Authority (SLA), or by falsely representing that it would be so used, and subsequently reporting that an arrangement had been so made. The Referee found, and we agree, there was no report made to the client subsequently. The Referee construed the charge to embrace conspiracy to bribe an SLA employee in 1961, in order to procure favorable consideration of the client's application then pending before the SLA. The evidence offered in support of the charge was contained in the transcript of a minifon recording made March 13, 1962. No money was actually obtained because the client reneged on the agreement. As transcribed the record supports the charge. The motion to confirm the report is granted.

In light of the circumstances present, the absence of any other charges against respondent prior or subsequent to the occurrence here involved, and the otherwise good reputation of respondent as attested to, respondent should be suspended for a period of three years.

Respondent suspended for a period of three years effective December 23, 1968.

Disposition

Respondent suspended for a period of three years effective December 23, 1968.
