A unanimous Disciplinary Review Board asked the New Jersey State SupremeCourt to disbar a lawyer/librarian who stole books from the AdministrativeOffice of the Courts and sold them for $16,145. Hugh Breyer was an AOClibrarian for two years until an anonymous tipster told the agency he wasfilching tomes. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 months probationand 100 hours of community service. His lawyer, Anthony Zarrillo Jr.,presented letters attesting to Breyer’s contrition and dedication to theprofession. At the time of the crime, Breyer was under a lot of stressbecause he was a new parent and separated from his wife, Zarrillo said. Thedisciplinarians weren’t in a forgiving mood. In its opinion, the board saidBreyer behaved as egregiously as other lawyers disbarred for theft. When hewas caught, Breyer said he didn’t remember who bought the books. Next timeyou take down a volume of the Supreme Court Reports, see if there’s an AOCstamp in it.
