IN RE: MARTIN J. CURRAN

S.J.C. Judgment of Disbarment entered by Justice Ireland on March 24, 2005.1

SUMMARY2

On October 25, 2004, the respondent pled guilty and was convicted in the United States District Court, District of New Hampshire (Concord) of four counts of false representation of a social security number in violation of 42 U.S.C. §408(a)(7), two counts of fraud in connection with identification documents in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§1028(a)(3) and (c)(3)(a), one count of fraud in connection with identification documents in violation of 18 U.S.C. §2 and 18 U.S.C. §§1028(a)(3) and (c)(3)(a), and two counts of bank fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §1344.

The respondent had previously been suspended by the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County on September 11, 1998, for a year and a day for unrelated misconduct. The respondent has never been reinstated.

On January 31, 2005, the respondent submitted to the Board of Bar Overseers an affidavit of resignation pursuant to S.J.C. Rule 4:01, §15, in which the respondent admitted to having committed “serious crimes,” as that term is defined by S. J. C. Rule 4:01, § 12(3), and that the underlying conduct violated Mass. R. Prof. C. 8.4(b), (c) and (h). On February 14, 2005, the Board of Bar Overseers voted to recommend to the court that the respondent’s affidavit of resignation be accepted and that the respondent be disbarred. On March 24, 2005, the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County so ordered.
