In what disciplinary officials called an “extraordinary” case, the D.C. Court of Appeals Board on Professional Responsibility moved Wednesday to disbar a lawyer after he asked for the sanction, telling the board he would wear disbarment as a badge of honor.

Attorney Glenn Stephens was assigned by an outside contracting company in 2013 to investigate employment complaints at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In a string of at least four disciplinary matters related to his two-year tenure there and his behavior afterward, Stephens was accused of a range of improper conduct, including harassing an employer; threatening to seek disciplinary charges to obtain an advantage in a civil matter; threatening to seek criminal charges to obtain an advantage in a civil matter; and interfering with the administration of justice.
