In continuing praise of Rex Wingerter

Aug 01, 2007 In continuing praise of Rex Wingerter

Like Gandhi, Rex Wingerter is a peaceful warrior for justice. (Image from public domain).

On May 18, 2007, I highly praised Rex Wingerter, after he got suspended from law practice over his federal conviction from a guilty plea to violating 18 U.S.C. § 4 (providing that "Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both").

Now, two days after Rex was disbarred in Maryland over his federal conviction, I continue singing his praises just as strongly, and told the Maryland Daily Record as much, on July 30, 2007.

The world and the legal community need more selfless and caring people with sharp minds. That continues to be Rex. I am sure that Rex will continue on that path.

Thanks, again, Rex for you, for your positive and contagious energy, and for your caring for others. Jon Katz.
