Blog: Lawyer told to pay restitution to Saginaw Chippewa Tribe
"A former Madison lawyer whose efforts to represent an Indian tribe from Michigan a decade ago led to professional misconduct complaints, got a public reprimand from the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

The high court ordered Carol J. Brown (Wisconsin '93) to also pay restitution of $36,680 to the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. According to the state bar's Web site, Brown's law license is currently suspended. She lists an Arkansas address with the Wisconsin bar.

According to the court's order, Brown's problems all stemmed from her firm's work with the tribe, which was plagued by infighting that helped put Brown in the situation that led the Office of Lawyer Regulation to file a seven-count complaint against her last year."
