An Arizona attorney has been suspended from practicing law after an investigation by the State Bar.
During the investigation, the three-member panel, led by the Acting Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Supreme Court of Arizona, found that Grant Goodman exploited protected individuals, knowingly made false statements to the court, opposed counsel and failed to respond to the State Bar's request for information.
Prior to the disciplinary hearing, Goodman was placed on an interim suspension on July 21, 2011, at the request of the disciplinary judge.
The State Bar ruled this week to suspend Goodman for two years, retroactive to July 2011.
Both Goodman and the State Bar can appeal the panel's decision.
