People v. Davis
In People v. Davis, 911 P.2d 45 (Colo. 1996) (en banc) (per curiam), the Colorado Supreme Court reviewed a 366-day suspension for, among other things, conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice. Id. at 47.
Specifically, the attorney, who was a defendant in a civil action, failed to appear at his own deposition, failed to produce documents, and filed for bankruptcy days before trial. Id. That filing resulted in an automatic stay that stopped the trial. Id.
Several months later, the lawyer moved to dismiss his bankruptcy, only to file a second bankruptcy petition on the eve of his newly reopened civil trial. Id.
Upholding the suspension, the Court found that flaunting court rules and orders constituted conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice. Id. at 47-48.
