On January 6, 2010, I wrote about Anthony D. Marshall, son of Brooke Astor, and his sentence of 1 - 3 years in prison for defrauding his mother as she suffered from Alzheimers. A co-defendant, Francis X. Morrissey, Jr., a lawyer who did estate planning for Mrs. Astor, was also convicted of a series of fraud and conspiracy charges, as well as one count of forging Mrs. Astor’s signature on an amendment to her will. That blog entry can be read in its entirety here

By operation of law, Francis X. Morrissey, Jr. (pictured above) has now been disbarred.
