The Florida Supreme Court disbarred Miami lawyer Jose Maria Herrera for 10 years on Wednesday, accepting a court-appointed referee’s findings that he had helped file frivolous lawsuits and disciplinary proceedings against rival law firm Lewis Tein and attorneys Guy Lewis and Michael Tein.

The justices agreed that Herrera violated 14 of the 18 Florida Bar rules flagged by the referee and ordered Herrera to pay $16,556 in costs for his part in the alleged abusive litigation.
