Since he apparently didn’t get the message the first time, the Supreme Court of Louisiana disbarred a former Verizon Communications Inc. lawyer a second time last week. And this time the court did so with feeling. After nearly a decade of keeping his first disbarment a secret, James Turnage was permanently banned from practicing law in the state on November 16.   Georgetown University ethics counsel and adjunct law professor Michael Frisch first reported the opinion in the Legal ProfessionBlog.   According to the opinion, Turnage was first admitted to practice law in Louisiana in 1993, and was  hired by WorldCom in a non-legal capacity. In 2001, Turnage was promoted to an attorney position. The next year he was disbarred for work that he did for private clients that had nothing to do with his job at WorldCom.
