Decision In the Matter of Michael Byrnes- Final Order
On May 8, 2013, the parties filed a Joint Motion to Dismiss and requested that the Commission approve a Disposition Agreement. The Presiding Officer referred the matter to the full Commission for deliberation on May 17, 2013.
In the proposed Disposition Agreement, the Respondent admits that he violated G. L. c. 268B, § 5(g) by failing to file his Statement of Financial Interests within ten (10) days of receiving a Formal Notice of Lateness, but provided documentation of mitigating circumstances. The Respondent has agreed to pay the civil penalty of $625 for the violation.
Accordingly, the Commission ALLOWS the Joint Motion to Dismiss. The Disposition Agreement is approved and this matter is hereby DISMISSED.
