The Pennsylvania Supreme Court Disciplinary Board slammed the brakes on a Pittsburgh suburban attorney's license to train after filing a car insurance claim after a speedway-racing accident, claiming he had instead swerved to miss a deer. Practicing in Ross, Pennsylvania, was racing his personal vehicle at the Pittsburgh International Racing Complex in 2017 when he crashed into a guardrail, TRIBlive.com reported this week.
The next day, according to documents obtained through the news agency, Mr Breen filed a claim with his insurance company, claiming that he hit a guardrail to avoid hitting a deer while on his way to his girlfriend with a pizza.
The insurer paid $ 21,299 for damage to the vehicle, but a subsequent investigation by the company revealed the information about the crash at the track, according to the news report.
Mr. Breen was charged with insurance fraud in 201
The Disciplinary Board found that Mr. Green violated the state's rules of professional conduct by committing a criminal act that "reflects the lawyer's honesty, trustworthiness or suitability as a lawyer in other respects," according to the report. Catalog
