Former lawmaker, House special counsel pleads guilty in Bar complaint



From the News Service of Florida:

The Florida Supreme Court reprimanded former Miami state representative Miguel De Grandy for conflict of interest infractions surrounding his legal representation of companies vying for Miami International Airport contracts.

De Grandy, who now serves as special counsel to the Florida House on redistricting matters, pleaded guilty to the charges and cooperated fully in the investigation. He agreed to pay $1,250 in court costs. According a consent decree with the Florida Bar, De Grandy did not represent the companies at the same time, but instead represented them in succession, which prompted a grievance committee to reach a verdict of minor misconduct.
