15 04/22/1997 DISPOSITION
16 04/22/1997 UNANIMOUS OPINION : Per Curiam
17 04/22/1997 Court exercised its inherent power and publicly reprimands LeRoy Anseth for violations of Rule
18 04/22/1997 1.16, NDRPC (failure to surrender papers and property to which the client is entitled) in cases A
19 04/22/1997 and C; and Rule 1.4, NDRPC, (failure to inform client about incomplete status of a case upon
20 04/22/1997 withdrawal of representation; failure to take steps to the extent reasonably practicable to
21 04/22/1997 protect client interests) in cases E and F; the Court is not concerned with cases B and D because
22 04/22/1997 there was no duty to turn over documents no longer in his possession.
23 04/22/1997 The Court found mitigating circumstances in Mr. Anseth's case specifically, the absence of a prior
24 04/22/1997 disciplinary record and his cooperation with the Disciplinary Board. Balanced against his
25 04/22/1997 failure to fully understand the seriousness of his misconduct, public reprimand is appropriate.
26 04/22/1997 LeRoy Anseth is also ordered to pay the costs and expenses of the disciplinary proceedings, in an
27 04/22/1997 amount to be determined by the Disciplinary Board.
28 04/22/1997 Judgment Mailed to Parties
29 05/09/1997 Disciplinary Board ordered to assess costs in amount of $2,879.52
30 06/12/1997 Payment of costs in the amount of $2,879.52 (Check No. 5853)
