Prominent New Jersey litigator David Gross is facing possible disbarment for making a big mistake and two little ones. First, he took $50,000 from a client in 1998 and didn't share it with his partners. Second, he confided in his secretary about what he did. Third, he got on the secretary's wrong side, and she squealed to the firm four years later. In an opinion made public on Tuesday, the New Jersey Disciplinary Review Board recommended disbarment for Gross, a leading product liability practitioner.
