Re: “Notes from the Hustings

I know nothing about Nightingale, but I feel it is only fair to provide additional information about Odom.

A FULL QUOTATION from the CA Bar Association's report is required to be fair. Last paragraph...

"Odom has no record of discipline in more than 23 years of practice, and the State Bar Court found that his conduct was aberrational. He was under extreme emotional stress at the time of the misconduct due to the disintegration of his marriage. His ex-wife had been his bookkeeper and she handled his client trust account; her departure and an increased caseload led to irregularities in Odom's record-keeping. In most of the cases, he made restitution to his clients before they complained to the State Bar."

That paragraph summarizes what caused the problems that lead to Gary Odom's resignation from the Bar. Anyone in the same situation, might have had a similar outcome! He seems to have recovered from the divorce and found a more fulfilling job. Good for him!
