Minnesota Litigator strives to provide news and developments in Minnesota civil litigation and aspires to avoid “non-newsworthy,” also known as “gossip,” but, as mentioned recently, some developments hover somewhere in between.
This news item admittedly falls primarily on the gossip end of the spectrum. On the other hand, Mr. Lyons is widely known in the Twin Cities legal community. In fact, earlier coverage of his ethical travails has been one of the most widely read posts on Minnesota Litigator. Today, the Minnesota Supreme Court suspended Lyons indefinitely from the practice of law with no right to petition for reinstatement for 12 months.
