In the Matter of Jasdeep S.

State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department


September 1, 2011

IN THE MATTER OF JASDEEP S. PANNU, AN ATTORNEY. COMMITTEE ON PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS, PETITIONER; JASDEEP S. PANNU, RESPONDENT.

Per curiam.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

(Attorney Registration No. 4424511)

Calendar Date: July 25, 2011

Before: Mercure, J.P., Peters, Spain, Stein and Egan Jr., JJ.

Respondent was admitted to practice by this Court in 2006. He was previously admitted in Vermont in 2005, where he maintains an office for the practice of law.

By order dated January 31, 2011, the Vermont Professional Responsibility Board publically reprimanded respondent after finding that he engaged in professional misconduct by, among other things, attempting to introduce inadmissible evidence in a criminal trial in violation of a court's pretrial ruling (Matter of Pannu, 2010 Vt 58 [2010]).

As a result of the discipline imposed in Vermont, petitioner moves for an order imposing discipline pursuant to this Court's rules (see 22 7NYCRR 806.19). Respondent has filed a responsive affidavit in which he acknowledges the misconduct and does not raise any available defenses to the imposition of discipline (see 22 NYCRR 806.19 [d]). Accordingly, we grant petitioner's motion and further conclude that, under the circumstances presented, respondent should be censured in this state.

Mercure, J.P., Peters, Spain, Stein and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.

ORDERED that petitioner's motion is granted; and it is further

ORDERED that respondent is hereby censured.
