Maine supreme court justice reverses reprimand of Portland lawyer in connection with foreclosure ‘robo-signing’ scandal

Bangor Daily News-

A Maine Supreme Judicial Court judge has reversed and dismissed the public reprimand of a Portland lawyer in connection with the foreclosure “robo-signing” scandal.

Justice Andrew Mead said in his 12-page decision dated Thursday, Jan. 15, that a three-member panel of the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar incorrectly found that Paul E. Peck of Portland had violated bar rules in 2010 because he did not “take immediate and effective action” to stop foreclosure proceedings that were based on faulty affidavits.

“[The] panel’s decision is founded upon a ‘should have known’ standard rather than actual knowledge,” Mead wrote. “The distinction is critical.”
