IN RE: DENNIS F. MONAHAN

S.J.C. Judgment of Disbarment entered by Justice Cordy on September 25, 2002.1

SUMMARY2

This matter came before the Court on the respondent’s affidavit of resignation pursuant to S.J.C. Rule 4:01, §15.

On April 8, 2002, the respondent pled guilty and was convicted in the U.S. District Court (Massachusetts) of forging the signature of a court officer, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 505. In an unrelated matter, on May 20, 2002, the respondent pled guilty and was convicted in the United States District Court (New Hampshire) of bankruptcy fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 152. The crimes to which the respondent pled guilty are felonies and thus are “serious crimes” as defined by Supreme Judicial Court Rule 4:01, §12(3).

On August 20, 2002, the respondent submitted his affidavit of resignation from the practice of law and acknowledged that the material facts set forth in the statement of disciplinary charges were true. On September 9, 2002, the Board voted to recommend that the respondent’s affidavit of resignation be accepted and that an order of disbarment be entered. The Court so ordered on September 25, 2002.
