Meihn Successfully Represents the State Bar of Michigan and the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission

Gregory M. Meihn, a partner in Foley Mansfield’s Detroit office, successfully represented the State Bar of Michigan and the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission in a civil suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The plaintiff, an attorney, claimed  that he was coerced into giving up his license in an earlier Attorney Grievance hearing alleging that the decision was : a) in violation of his rights under 1st and 14th Amendment to U.S. Constitution; b) was a conspiracy by the State Bar and Attorney Grievance Commission with others to deprive him of his constitutional rights and law license; c) was in retaliation for his prior filings against the State Bar and the Attorney Grievance Commission; d) violated his substantive due process rights; and finally,  e) engaged in selective prosecution.

On behalf of the State Bar and Attorney Grievance Commission, Meihn argued that Plaintiff’s claims were barred on jurisdictional and immunity grounds, claim and issue preclusion, and the paucity of specific facts to support the broad conclusory allegations. 

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan agreed, and on December 22, 2017 granted the State Bar’s and Attorney Grievance Commission’s Motion to Dismiss as requested by Meihn. 

This is a significant win for the client as the Motions were filed early in the case saving the clients substantial costs and fees.
