Minnesota lawyer’s license suspended over stabbing incident

A Minnesota attorney who handles personal injury cases had his professional license suspended after he was involved in a stabbing incident at a hotel bar, an article of Star Tribune reported on July 28.

According to reports, a suspension order was imposed on 42-year-old Michael Riehm’s attorney license after he stabbed a man in 2014 at Manny’s bar. The victim, identified as Daniel Kerkinni, sustained a stab wound and punctured lung after he made an offensive joke about the attorney’s spouse. The Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility prevented Riehm from appealing the suspension for five years. Riehm was also ordered to settle $200,000 worth of damage to Kerkinni.
