How not to approach C&F

"In a 5-2 per curiam opinion, the Supreme Court found that while the traffic infractions themselves would have had modest impact on the consideration of Shamir L. Coll’s application to take the February 2016 bar exam, his interpretation of the application process reflected “a degree of arrogance and disdainfulness for the Court that brings into serious question” his judgment and ability to represent clients."

...

"The board characterized the vehicular incidents Coll disclosed as “relatively benign” but raised concerns about his unwillingness to provide details of his violations, and a subsequent statement that he had provided all the information the board required, including descriptions of the incidents, the final disposition, and the charges he faced. Instead, Coll reported only that he had violations in “Many Cities, Many Counties, OH.” When asked by a bar admissions specialist to provide the full information — with a caution that failure to comply could impact his ability to sit for the bar exam — Coll provided only his name, Social Security number, driver’s license number, and an abstract from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles reflecting no moving violations in the past three years."

Even if this dude passed the bar exam and became an attorney, he's probably the type of lawyer that would get disbarred fairly quickly anyways (not to mention, facing several malpractice claims. probably.). So, in a sense, I guess the court did HIM a favor here.

Someone with that attitude towards rules wouldn't last long as an attorney anyways, good riddance.

Imagine the attitude he would take with clients and cases.

The dissent is good

“Coll has demonstrated an attitude that shows he lacks the ability to take that oath and does not have the professional judgment demanded of all lawyers. His lack of candor and his disrespect for the Court in frustrating our obligation to thoroughly investigate those seeking admission to the bar in Ohio suggest that he will not ever have the character and fitness to take the oath to become a lawyer in Ohio,”

edit: He actually represented himself before the Supreme Court of Ohio. That's pretty baller all things considered. He is kind of a twat though.
