A Newark, N.J., solo with a history of flouting ethics rules faces a three-month suspension or longer for making improper sexual remarks to four female clients and friends. Appearing before the New Jersey Supreme Court on Dec. 1, David Witherspoon said he regretted his comments and that he was ready to accept the suspension recommended by a majority of the Disciplinary Review Board. Two DRB members pushed for a six-month suspension, based on what they called his "lack of candor" and "lack of moral values."
