Student paper disbars WI lawyer

Via the UW-Madison's Badger Herald:
Former attorney John Basting started the group in late 2007 and said it will be examining materials and ads released by the candidates to make sure they comply with judicial code.*
It's Tom Basting, Sr., and I'm reasonably certain he remains a member in good standing of the State Bar of Wisconsin, as he's currently its past president and sits on the executive committee.

Speaking of the State Bar, David Ziemer is displeased with the recently relaxed rules for interlopers (and I can't say I blame him).

* They make him sound like a building inspector.
