The Florida Supreme Court entered an order that granted a petition for disciplinary revocation involving ex-West Palm Beach attorney Donald Jacobson, who fired multiple shotgun shells that peppered his then-girlfriend, a terminally ill cancer patient who had asked him for her medication.

Anthony V. Alfieri, a professor and director of the Center for Ethics & Public Service at the University of Miami School of Law, who is not involved in the case, said Jacobson’s case raised important questions that go beyond the particular circumstances of his disciplinary prosecution and criminal punishment.
