Adorno suspended, faces disbarment



Prominent Florida attorney Henry "Hank" Adorno suspended by Florida Supreme Court and faces disbarment for a remarkable breach of fiduciary duty in negotiating a class action settlement that wasn't a class action settlement. One can see why he's surprised, given that his explicit collusion with defendants to cheat the class was different only in degree to standard class action plaintiffs' attorneys' practice. The Miami city attorneys on the side of the settlement, who claimed to have been snookered, haven't faced any discipline, despite what was effectively a stunning admission of incompetence.
