LAWYER RESIGNS OVER ‘UNSOLICITED CORRESPONDENCE’
A Toronto lawyer has surrendered her licence to practise law after a Law Society of Upper Canada hearing panel found she had sent “unsolicited correspondence” to judges.
The panel allowed Jeunesse Hosein to surrender her licence, which she did during an Oct. 14 hearing.
Hosein sent “unsolicited correspondence in relation to previously litigated matters to two judges, despite having been specifically asked not to do so by the regional senior justice of the central west region,” according to the panel.
The panel also found the lawyer guilty of failing to co-operate with a law society investigation. It ordered her to pay $2,500 in costs to the law society.
Meanwhile, the law society disbarred another Toronto lawyer, Edmund Peterson, for failing to provide information to the regulator about “the disposition of his law practice.”
According to the order, the law society had sought documents from Peterson through a letter in January 2013.
