Michael Cohen Disbarred Over Felony Conviction

Bloomberg reports:

President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is no longer a recognized attorney after he was disbarred in New York after pleading guilty to lying to Congress about a plan for a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

An appeals court in Manhattan granted a request from a disciplinary panel to remove Cohen’s name from the roll of attorneys allowed to practice in the state.

He was admitted to the bar in New York in 1992. A federal felony conviction automatically triggers disbarment if it’s also a felony under New York law.
