MARYLAND DISBARS PROMINENT CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER FOR MONEY LAUNDERING

The Court of Appeals of Maryland, the state's highest court, has disbarred* prominent  College Park attorney Walter Lloyd Blair, who served a lengthy sentence for money laundering, witness tampering, and ten other charges, which were affirmed on appeal. Blair filed an unsuccesful action against then-US Attorney Rod Rosenstein, whom he accused of being prejudiced against him, due to his Jamaican origin.

 Blair, who was suspended in 2010 after his conviction, applied to be readmitted after his release in 2017. The high court denied his Petition for Reinstatement.
