Two I.R.S. Lawyers Suspended for Misconduct
How often does this happen--over a cooperation deal, no less? Houston lawyer Michael Minns did a great job.
The law licenses of two former Internal Revenue Service lawyers have been suspended for two years after a federal court ruling last year that they defrauded the courts so that the I.R.S. could win 1,300 tax shelter cases. W. Kenneth McWade was suspended by the Oregon Supreme Court in an order dated Aug. 10 and released yesterday by the Oregon State Bar.
Four months ago Arkansas officials suspended the license of William A. Sims. The United States Tax Court has also suspended both lawyers for two years, and the I.R.S. director of practice has suspended them indefinitely.
