The Marin-based Center for Judicial Excellence (CJE) has filed a complaint with the State Bar of California demanding the disbarment of Sacramento attorney Nabil Samaan. The group says Samaan’s license should be taken away because of comments Samaan made to a reporter that, according to CJE, appear to support his brother’s decision to allegedly murder his own two-year old daughter.
“That is so not going to happen,” said attorney Diane Karpman of the disbarment motion. Her firm, Karpman & Associates of Beverly Hills, specializes in providing “ethics counsel” and defending attorneys at the Bar. She added, “Having a wild mouth is not going to get you disbarred.”
She pointed to “birther” attorney Orly Taitz. Taitz has said all sorts of bizarre things to the press, Karpman noted. While there have been complaints made to the California State Bar about Taitz, Karpman added, they’re all related to her actual conduct in court or in connection with particular cases she’s been involved in.
