In Re:

Complaint as to the Conduct of

TERRY G. SUNDKVIST,

Accused.

(OSB 96-95, 96-96; SC S44566)

On review of the decision of a trial panel of the Disciplinary Board.

Submitted on the record and brief December 3, 1997.

Jane E. Angus, Assistant Disciplinary Counsel, Lake Oswego, filed a brief on behalf of the Oregon State Bar.

No appearance contra.

Before Carson, Chief Justice, and Gillette, Van Hoomissen, Durham, and Kulongoski, Justices.*

PER CURIAM

The accused is disbarred.

* Fadeley, J., retired January 31, 1998, and did not participate in the decision of this case. Graber, J., resigned March 31, 1998, and did not participate in the decision of this case.

PER CURIAM

In this disciplinary proceeding, the Oregon State Bar (Bar) charged the accused with violating Code of Professional Responsibility Disciplinary Rule (DR) 1-102(A)(2) (engaging in a criminal act that reflects adversely on a lawyer's honesty, trustworthiness or fitness to practice law), DR 1-102(A)(3) (conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation), DR 1-103(C) (failure to cooperate), and ORS 9.527(1) (conduct for which the accused would be denied admission to the Bar, if applying) and (4) (wilful deceit or misconduct in the legal profession).

A trial panel of the disciplinary board conducted a hearing on the charges. The accused made no appearance, but admitted the facts on which the Bar based its charges. That trial panel found that the accused had violated each of the disciplinary rules and statutes alleged by the Bar and imposed the sanction of disbarment.

A recitation of the pertinent facts would not benefit the Bar or the public. On de novo review of the record, we conclude that the accused is guilty of each of the Bar's charges and that the appropriate sanction is disbarment.

The accused is disbarred.
