An attorney well known for representing Holocaust survivors has been disbarred after he neglected to pay sanctions imposed by a federal judge in a multibillion-dollar lawsuit against Bank Austria Creditanstalt and others. Thursday, a New York appellate court held that Edward Davis Fagan's failure to pay the bulk of a $5,000 sanction and all of the nearly $350,000 in fees owed to Bank Austria, his "pattern of prior sanctions for unprofessional conduct" and "lack of contrition" made him unfit to practice law.
