Orleans councilman Gray suspended from practicing law
NEW ORLEANS - An attorney who serves on the New Orleans City Council has been suspended from the practice of law for two years.
Louisiana's Supreme Court handed down the decision Tuesday against James Gray. The court said it was accepting the recommendation of its disciplinary board.
The decision outlined four cases in which Gray neglected clients' legal matters. The court said Gray failed to respond when complaints were lodged against him and did not cooperate in the investigation. It also said Gray's testimony about the cases was not credible, and it ordered Reed to refund money to two of the clients.
Gray's office did not immediately respond to telephone and email requests for comment.
