N.C. Appeals Court

ATTORNEY FEES - The North Carolina Court of Appeals affirmed a decision to disbar attorney James B. Ethridge after 30 years of practice after he tried to defraud an elderly woman who asked him to help her safeguard her property. Instead of undertaking a fiduciary duty for the woman, he deposited the money from her liquidated estate into his own bank account, withdrew some of it for himself, and later gave only part of the woman's money back to her guardian ad litem.
