The Minnesota Supreme Court recently suspended two attorneys for disciplinary reasons.
Bruce Anthony Kunz was suspended for four months3 and can file for reinstatement 60 days after the suspension ends. He was accused of entering into business transactions with clients without the required disclosures and without obtaining the clients written, informed consent. He was further accused of representing clients despite having a conflict of interest and failing to disclose a client’s interest in and income from one of Kunz’s business transactions with the client to a bankruptcy court.
David Allan Richter was suspended indefinitely. His reinstatement is conditioned on his completion of the professional responsibility portion of the state bar examination and satisfying his continuing legal education requirements. He was accused of failing to comply with the terms of a private probation, failure to maintain his trust and account books and failing to cooperate with a disciplinary investigation. He did not file a response with the court on the question of his discipline.
