Lisa Aubuchon Granted Temporary Stay of Disbarment; Supreme Court Gives Her Until May 30

Lisa Aubuchon has been granted a temporary stay of her disbarment until the state Supreme Court decides whether she get a longer stay as she makes her appeal.

Lisa Aubuchon has managed to eke out a three-week stay of her disbarment.

After being told by the state Supreme Court's Disciplinary Judge that her "staggering mountain of wrongdoing" means she would be officially stripped of her law license today, the Court's duty justice, Robert Brutinel, granted her a temporary stay.

Brutinel wants the stay to remain in effect until May 30, when the Court is scheduled to decide on her petition for special action, which was basically an appeal of her failed appeal for a stay.



Aubuchon has had a private law practice in Tempe since being fired from her job as a deputy county attorney in 2010.

Justice Brutinel also took a hard tone in his order, telling Aubuchon not to take on any new clients and to make sure her existing clients know about the April 10 disbarment order by the three-member disciplinary panel.

In Maricopa County, nothing ever goes smoothly.

Are corrupt judges all right with you all as long as they are leftists, or you're not the one in their courtroom?  Is a NO-BID contract made with plenty of money lubricant in the "right" hands for the new court tower OK with the taxpayers?  Is it OK for the Bar disciplinary judge to be friends with one of the judges that Thomas tried to indict for corruption?  It's not OK for me.  O'Neill, if he had been made of more honorable material, would have recused himself.  This whole mess is so complicated that Joe Sixpak on the street has no clue, and never will.

Aubuchon  isn't qualified to be a notary public let alone an attorney. She showed by her actions that she is unable to think for herself and lacks the courage to say no when asked to do something that is so obviously wrong.

Yeah, they can't hang Lisa fast enough for you, can they, Stern?

That's not a true statement, Laine. I sincerely hope Lisa is afforded every right under the law before her disbarment is set in stone.

I just read your ridiculous defense of Lisa, btw: http://www.lainelawless.com/ne...

You took Robert Robb's quotes out of context -- he makes it very clear in both columns you quoted from that Aubuchon and Thomas deserved disbarment. How'd you miss that?

I'd like to see you to write a better defense of Lisa that doesn't focus on your praise of her work as your lawyer. Perhaps you could include your analysis of the RICO suit and Donahoe charges that takes into account the testimony from the disciplinary hearings. What really matters are the facts of the case, not the corny over-writing of the disciplinary panel's final report.

Last note -- to see the best examples of that over-writing all in one place, check out Tom Zoellner's April 11 piece in the New Times' blog Jackalope Ranch: http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.c...

Aubuchon probably doesn't need anyone named "Lawless" taking her side. Might create the wrong impression, ya know what I mean?

Nope, she brought this on herself and deserves every bit of it by being a corrupt monkey for Bozo Joe Arputo.

Yeah, they cant hang her fast enough for my tastes. I am a law student and ethics are what they drill into you, esp. the first year. The unethical crap aubuchon pulled is pointed out as specifically unethical from my initial classes and it still is, going into my second year of school. Aubuchon's errors were common sense legal knowledge and i find it sad that neither aubuchon or thomas could see this whatsoever, being so blinded by their own personal agenda.

Do you think aubuchon shouldnt have been disbarre? Your comment hints at your possible support of aubuchon, thomas and alexanders case...

How do you justify their completely unethical actions... Any beginning law student is well aware of what the statute of limitations is but aubuchon, thomas, and alexander seem to have no clue... It is reprehensible that these kooks held high legal positions in maricopa county when they seem to have forgotten the basics of their legal education.
Stern?
What point are you trying to make with your snide comment to Stern? Legal professionals that take unethical and illegal actions against their own citizens should be bounced out of their profession asap and if you think otherwise i have to question your intelligence and knowledge of legal ethics.
