Case Digest By Report and Recommendation dated May 11, 2007, the Disciplinary Board recommended that Petitioner be reinstated to the practice of law. This was Petitionerís second attempt at reinstatement. The Disciplinary Board found that the sixteen years that had elapsed between Respondentís disbarment as a result of his criminal conviction was a sufficient length of time to dissipate the stigma surrounding Petitionerís misconduct. Further, the Board agreed with the Hearing Committee that Petitionerís moral qualifications had been established by, among other things, his rehabilitation, acceptance of responsibility for his actions and volunteer service to the community. The concerns raised by Office of Disciplinary Counsel, which included a failure to pay taxes timely and to list his admission to the Tax Court on his reinstatement questionnaire, were not significant enough to preclude reinstatement. By Order dated June 18, 2007, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania granted the Petition for Reinstatement.
