FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE #051

FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

On the 5th day of June, 1998 , the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the case(s) listed below:

PER CURIAM :

98-B - 0368 IN RE: WADE N. KELLY

Disciplinary Proceedings

Upon review of the findings and recommendations of the hearing committee and disciplinary board, and considering the record, briefs and oral argument, it is the decision of this court that respondent, Wade N. Kelly, be suspended from the practice of law for a period of three years. All costs of this matter are assessed against respondent.

CALOGERO, C.J. - not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, §3.

KNOLL, J. - dissents with reasons. There are several strong mitigating factors that in my view, render the sanction of 3 years suspension too harsh. A less severe sanction would have accomplished the same goal.


98-B - 0535 IN RE: WOODY MARVIN DUNN

Disciplinary Proceedings

Accordingly, it is ordered that respondent, Woody Marvin Dunn, be suspended from the practice of law for a period of six months, deferred, subject to a one year probationary period under the conditions recommended by the disciplinary board. Costs in the amount of $788.80 are assessed against respondent.

TRAYLOR, J. - not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, §3.

CALOGERO, C.J. - dissents, in part being of the view that a public reprimand is an adequate penalty for the relatively minor misconduct proved in this case.

LEMMON, J. - dissents, believing that a public reprimand is the appropriate remedy under the circumstances of this case.
