Bridgeport, Conn., attorney Rebecca L. Johnson’s ignominious legal career already has been derailed for three years, as a result of her law license being suspended. Now, on the heels of another ethical lapse by Johnson, New Haven Superior Court Judge Linda K. Lager has tacked on an additional 18 months in the legal profession’s version of purgatory.

The earliest Johnson can apply for readmission is in 2009. Lager ordered Johnson’s new suspension to take effect July 27, 2007. That date marks the end of a three-year suspension issued in 2004. For Johnson, it’s the third time since September 2002 that the courts have stripped her of the ability to practice law.
