An Inglorious End to Mike Berlon’s Legal Career

Former Democratic Party of Georgia chairman Mike Berlon surrendered his law license on Monday.

Berlon is caught in legal woes surrounding a 2010 medical malpractice suit, and could allegedly face a federal investigation into how he handled the case.

His story is a bit sad. He was run out of the DPG chairmanship for… well, basically not doing anything. Along the way he alienated almost all his supporters and left office without many friends. It was a swift and precipitous fall that is almost over but could see more ignominy–prison is possible for Berlon.
