The State Bar of Arizona wants to throw the book at an attorney who told a client she was channeling his dead wife, then allegedly lied about it during an unrelated disciplinary proceeding. Earlier this month, the Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Arizona upped Charna Johnson's suspension from six months and a day to one year followed by two years of probation. However, the State Bar is still not satisfied and has filed a notice of its intent to ask the Supreme Court to review the case and disbar Johnson.
