What ever happened to that law professor (SMU was it?) that intentionally hit the bike rider? She still merrily driving around tapping those she disapproves of? - TF
That's still a felony conviction. So what does that do to her license to practice law or, for that matter, to teach law?RocketDog said:Google reveals:
Five years probation and two years community service. Rather than rant, I'm just not going to comment.
I posed this question to my wife, an attorney. She responded thusly (and I paraphrase):Spoke Wrench said:That's still a felony conviction. So what does that do to her license to practice law or, for that matter, to teach law?
I have never heard any of this. Did you find a source???? - TFChris H said:Wow, that leaves out a few details. IIRC, and I'm going off my bad memory, she was actually a cyclist(well cyclist is a strong word... she had a bike) as well going to the park (White Rock Lake) to ride. Also, they are/were both professors at SMU who had verbal spats in the past. He initially stated that it was grudge motivated, or something along that line since they had some pretty serious issues on a professional level. Man the memory gets fuzzy after a while. I'll have to see what I can find later when I have more time.
She lost her job and her license to practice if I recall correctly.bonkmiester said:I posed this question to my wife, an attorney. She responded thusly (and I paraphrase):
Here in NC, the licsense would not be revoked because of the felony. There are many practicing felonius (sp) attorneys with, for example: drug convictions and DWI convictions...
Now if this was a case of moral terpitude.......embezzlement of trust funds being the biggie,,,,,,,,our road raging barrister would be disbarred
It is my wife's opinion that the professor should at least be dismissed from the SMU Law School staff.............
The fact that she was driving a VW Pasatt and not an SUV does not get her any brownie points.........
