Indeed.
More notably when compared with the greater penalties imposed upon less errant attorneys.

A mere slap on the wrist for a despicable act - the act of supporting child pornaography.

Lets assume that this "attorneys" destuction of data had worked - he would have been responsible for letting a criminal (his "client") conintue to walk the streets and continue in the world of child exlpoitation.

This fellow should be in jail along with his "client".

All the injustices in this town, really, to be so outraged over this? This is nothing compared to all the injustices in this town! The supposedly most upstanding are the absolute worse!

Renee: Lots of injustices occuring in Walling ford? I'd think none of them could hold a candle to child pornography, eh?

Cagle: Please explain what is good about what Russell did?

Does ethical and moral behavior count anymore?

How can this attorney be reinstated after deliberately destroying evidence? Especially evidence of that nature?

What DOES it take to have a crooked attorney disbarred?

I'll write about this in my law blog!

Phil Russell has always been a "clown", and a mere spinster of the truth.

He honestly believes that people will still go to him after this mess ? HE IS INSANE. Famed CNN analyst Attorney Mickey Sherman moved right into a nearby spot in Greenwich and has taken over the criminal practice there. Phil is finished in the practice - he just doesn't know it yet.

How many lawyers have left that BUM.....well, let's see, his former female assistant has SUED him for harassment, cruel, and inhuman working conditions - SHE won a PREJUDGMENT remedy in Bridgeport Superior Court and is looking to hammer him for serious dough.

Attorney Harold Burke left the grasps of Phil, and now has a successful divorce practice in Greenwich.

Attorney Roy Ward left the grasps of Phil Russell, to start a successful firm in Southport - THE BEST is that Roy Ward DID ALL OF PHIL'S LEGAL DEFENSE work in Federal Court and got NO THANK YOU, no MONEY, nothing. Just more aggravation and emptiness from Phil the CROOK.

Attorney Chris Caldwell left last year to start a firm, and is now successful, practicing in Norwalk.

Attorney Ross Kaufman left after Caldwell. He had enough after just several months.

Attorney James Pastore just got hired by the Norwalk Public Defender's Office and will be leaving that CROOK anyday now.

THAT TELLS US ALL SOMETHING -

PHIL RUSSELL IS, BEYOND ALL DOUBT, A CROOK, and the PROOF is in the flux of people LEAVING the EMPLOY of a tyrant - a PIG. Phil was an arrogant pig and continues to be one with this article. Trying to "spin" his return into something positive? No one CARES Phil. Your a LOSER, and you always were. REMEMBER YOUR DWI near Mohegan Sun Casino ? YOU HAD TO DO THE Alcohol Education Program for being a drunk jerk, driving 100 MPH from the casino. He got a huge break then.

He is man that deserves nothing but misery. He has caused so much misery for so many people; he has trampled on victim's rights, and lied numerous times to his own clients! He has lied, cheated, and stolen FREEDOM from his clients in order to line his pockets with MONEY.

Most of the BAR in Fairfield County wish this arrogant PIG would just go away and practice being a shyster in upstate NY, where none of us ever have to see him. Please leave the area, Phil. We don't want to "read" about how your excited to get back into court - NO ONE CARES. Your slime.

I didn't say any of what he did is good and/or acceptable, it is absolutely atrocious. One would like to believe that ethical and moral behavior does count, however, I've been shown it really doesn't seem to matter at the end of the day!

Perhaps your comments could be taken seriously...if you had the balls to put your real signature on them.

HOW SERIOUS WOULD ANYONE TAKE THIS ? Anyone who knows Phil, knows that he is a clown. All he's missing is some funny-looking shoes and a wig.
