Minneapolis lawyer facing ethics complaint over porn suits

 


The state board that investigates ethics complaints against Minnesota lawyers has filed a petition seeking to suspend or disbar Minneapolis lawyer Paul Hansmeier, who built a career suing thousands of people nationwide for downloading Internet porn, then turned to filing what some call “nuisance lawsuits” against small businesses that allegedly fail to comply with disability access laws.

The 43-page petition by the Minnesota Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board, signed Oct. 28, was made public Monday, just days after the U.S. Bankruptcy Court trustee moved to liquidate Hansmeier’s assets forcibly, arguing that he sought court protection from creditors in “bad faith.”
