Board Splits Over Suspension Of Baton Rouge Attorney

Legal law concept image scales of justice

Baton Rouge attorney faces possible suspension following a split Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board recommendation to the state Supreme Court.

In its 32-page recommendation, the LADB suggested Donald R. Dobbins be suspended two years due to his pattern of misconduct and multiple offenses, including forgery.

The LADB's recommendation follows a split hearing committee's legal conclusions and its own recommendation in August 2018 that Dobbins be suspended two years with a year and six months deferred.

Two days later, the office of disciplinary counsel objected, saying the recommended discipline was not enough.
