Kingston attorney disbarred for excessive court filings

Kingston attorney Joseph R. Reisinger has been disbarred for excessive court filings that “wasted the time and resources of the Luzerne County Court” and forced the court to “defend itself against baseless allegations of conspiracy,” according to a state Supreme Court ruling from Friday.

Reisinger, 72, failed to appear at an argument proceeding March 7 and must pay expenses incurred by the investigation and prosecution of the complaint against him. In Friday’s ruling, the state Supreme Court accepted recommendations made by the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Reisinger could not be reached for comment. A phone number listed for Reisinger was no longer active.

In 2011, Reisinger filed a lawsuit against Luzerne County Court Administrator Michael Shucosky and Judge Charles Brown with a pleading captioned, “Complaint for Permanent Injunction Because of Judicial Corruption.” At that time, Brown was assigned multiple actions that concerned Reisinger’s rental properties.

In 2012, Reisinger filed a lawsuit against Judge Michael T. Vough alleging judicial corruption. In 2013, he filed a lawsuit against Shucosky and Daniel Pillets, a law clerk to Judge Fred Pierantoni, and another suit against Judge Lesa S. Gelb.

Those cases were all dismissed, according to the Disciplinary Board.

Without knowing more, it's hard to tell who is right and wrong here. But obviously the lawyer felt strongly or he wouldn't have continued to file motions. Shouldn't he have that right?
