The Maine Board of Bar Examiners Denied F. Lee Bailey’s Application to Practice Law in the State
The famous lawyer, F. Lee Bailey, won’t be able to open an office and practice law in Maine, despite passing the state bar exam.
The Maine Board of Bar Examiners voted 5 to 4 to ban Bailey from practicing law. The law organization wrote in their decision that Bailey ‘had not demonstrated by “clear and convincing evidence that he possesses the requisite honesty and integrity” to open practice in the state.
Bailey, who represented O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, has a home in Maine. He also had a license to practice law in both Florida and Massachusetts, but Bailey was disbarred from both states. He mishandled $6 million worth of stock.
