Wrong:stockingfull wrote:Once again, the small matter of the facts:
5-yr suspension from law practice in AR ended January 2006, resigned from Supreme Ct. bar. Never "disbarred" anywhere.
I'm sorry Kathleen Willy. So when your argument falls apart you start to correct spelling. How is my sentence structure?stockingfull wrote:spc wrote:Wanita Broderick ring a bell, how about Kathlyn Willy?
