The Florida Bar v. Clint Johnson
SC11-1136, SC11-1578, SC11-2343
In these disciplinary cases, the Florida Bar accuses Mr. Johnson of violating several of the ethical standards required of lawyers. The trial judge considering the cases as a referee concluded Mr. Johnson was negligent in his management of accounts in which clients' funds are held in trust. The referee recommends this Court impose a six-month suspension as well as require probation, audits, training and mentoring. The Bar also accuses Mr. Johnson of violating this Court's emergency suspension. The referee agreed and recommends a 12-month suspension.
Justice Perry is recused.
