Court rules to disbar Clearwater lawyer in federal fraud case

The Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Edward J. Geoghegan, who practiced law in Clearwater, should be disbarred immediately.

He still can appeal by filing a motion for a rehearing.

Geoghegan was a central figure in a six-month federal trial over allegations that Sooner Defense of Florida defrauded the government. He was sentenced in January to nine years in prison but is free on bail while he awaits an appeal.
