SD Supreme Court Suspends Atty for Acting Improperly in Guardianship and Conservatorship Case

The South Dakota Supreme Court has suspended an Aberdeen attorney for 45 days for acting improperly in a guardianship and conservator case. The suspension begins May 27.

The American News reports that Tom Tobin did not contest the recommendation from the State Bar's disciplinary board. He did not immediately return a telephone call to The Associated Press on Tuesday seeking comment.

Tobin served as city attorney for Aberdeen from 1986-1999. The disciplinary board said he has been the subject of previous complaints and has been publically censured in the past.
