Lawyer Reprimanded for Suing His Own Sister

roy-1Roy A. Raspanti, a lawyer in Louisiana, has been reprimanded by the Louisiana Supreme Court for suing his own sister, Janine Raspanti, for repeatedly filing complaints against him. The Disciplinary Board had recommended a three-month suspension.

The disciplinary board had recommended suspending him for three months with nine months’ suspension deferred.

Louisiana has a rule that lawyers cannot sue people for filing complaints, even when such filings are malicious.

He sued her for defamation.
