Aggravating and Mitigating Factors in Discipline Cases - Breakout #2

Friday, June 1 
(2:00 - 3:20pm)

Moderator: Mark Armitage
Panelists: Michael Downey, William Lucero, Wendy Muchman, Trisha Rich

The Standards for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions includes descriptions of various factors in aggravation, and in mitigation, of an offense that bar discipline adjudicators are to take into account in the process of meting out discipline.  But how is evidence actually developed, presented, and sorted into those categories in the course of preparing and trying a discipline case?  Our panel of experienced litigators and adjudicators will examine some of the problems in dealing with aggravation and mitigation evidence in the course of a hypothetical disciplinary prosecution.
