Prominent real estate lawyer Adam Leitman Bailey was suspended from the New York bar for four months on Tuesday over accusations that he barged into an arbitration hearing and swore at a witness and that he threatened to refer a tenant for criminal prosecution over comments posted online.

Bailey, whose eponymous firm employs 26 lawyers and 24 staff, was hit with the suspension by the Appellate Division, First Department. The panel rejected his argument that a mere censure would be appropriate, noting that he had been chastised twice before for “inappropriate litigation behavior.”
