In the Matter of Peter J. Galasso

(Court of Appeals of New York) – In disciplinary proceeding against an attorney for various misconduct, including allegations that he failed to properly supervise the firm’s bookkeeper resulting in misappropriation of client funds and that he breached his fiduciary duty by failing to safeguard those funds, the order of the Appellate Division is modified to dismiss the charge for failing to timely comply with the Grievance Committee’s lawful demands for information where the imposition of this separate charge is unsupported by the record.
