A review panel that oversees the conduct of attorneys is upholding a recommendation for a censure of Alderman Sam Cahnman over a 2007 incident.
In that incident, Cahnman obtained a page from a judge’s personal appointment book and included it in a court filing.
Cahnman told the judge that he had permission to copy the page from the judge’s secretary… but she denied that.
A hearing panel found that Cahnman violated two rules of conduct and recommended a censure.
The review panel overturned one of those findings but upheld the other… and still says a censure is appropriate.
