SACRAMENTO — Joe Dunn misled the State Bar Board of Trustees on a number of issues, including the potential sale of the Bar's San Francisco office, and failed to meet his fiduciary responsibilities as the organization's executive director, according to a report weighed by trustees before they voted to fire him.

The report, initiated by the board of trustees and submitted by lawyers with Munger, Tolles & Olson, raised questions about trips to Mongolia taken by Dunn and another Bar employee as well as Dunn's candor about a Bar-sponsored piece of legislation. The report has not been made public, but two people who had reviewed the document shared its contents with The Recorder.
