Besieged Florida attorney and political rainmaker Scott Rothstein is picking his battles -- and trying to stay a lawyer is not one of them. The ousted chairman of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler has submitted a request of permanent disbarment on consent to the Florida Bar. The Bar confirmed Wednesday it accepted his request, which must be approved by the Florida Supreme Court. The upshot is that Rothstein would not have to defend himself against a Bar investigation for breaking any rules regulating Florida attorneys.
