A California attorney whose prolific filings on behalf of objectors has made him a well-known figure in class action settlements should be referred to bar authorities for failing to disclose that he is suspended from practicing law, according to lawyers in a case over Whirlpool dishwasher fires this month.

J. Darrell Palmer, a solo practitioner in Carlsbad, California, has represented objectors in some of the country’s most prominent class action settlements, including those over the BP oil spill and the BarBri bar review course. Some of his objections, including those before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, have been successful in overturning settlements.

But on June 17, the bar suspended Palmer from practicing law in California for 90 days after he failed to disclose in three cases a prior conviction for failing to pay taxes on two businesses in Colorado.
