Rhode Island foreclosure attorney faces one year suspension

A foreclosure lawyer in Rhode Island has been suspended for one year by a U.S. District Court judge, an article from the Providence Journal reported on Monday, December 2.

U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell Jr. suspended attorney George Babcock from handling foreclosure cases in the court for one year. Though the basis of the suspension was not revealed, attorney Babcock was ordered to pay $10,000 in August due to falsely stating documents had been filed.

Babcock’s clients that are being tried in McConnell’s District Court were advised to either get a new lawyer or personally represent themselves in court if they do not wish for their claim to be dismissed.
