Texas Lawyer Who Filed Birther-Suit Against Cruz Already Suspended In Two States

The left-wing Houston lawyer who filed a long-shot birther-suit against Sen. Ted Cruz has been suspended  in Louisiana and Pennsylvania, according to a report from PJ Media.

Newton Schwartz, the left-wing, 80-plus year-old lawyer filed the lawsuit in Texas.

But his chances, already poor, are made worse by his past, according to PJ Media, because Schwartz has “been suspended from the practice of law by two separate states for disciplinary infractions.”

According to the detailed disciplinary ruling against Schwartz in Louisiana, he engaged in legal matters in Louisiana but was never admitted to practice law in the state and never sought temporary admission.

… The Louisiana Office of Disciplinary Counsel filed formal charges against Schwartz on July 19, 2011.  In February 2014, Schwartz was suspended from attempting to practice law in Louisiana.

…. Louisiana disciplinary counsel alleged that Schwartz had a swarm of ethical violations.  They include “engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.”

Schwartz was also barred from practicing in Pennsylvania.  According to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Schwartz consented to his suspension from the practice of law in Pennsylvania.
