Former Mayor Asks State Supreme Court To Return Law License

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim’s lawyer has told the state Supreme Court his client has shown remorse for his corrupt tenure as mayor of Connecticut’s largest city and deserves to win back his law license.

But the chief disciplinary counsel at the state’s judicial branch told the court Tuesday that Ganim has failed to show remorse and should not have his law license returned.

A three-judge panel last year rejected Ganim’s request for his license, saying he failed to show remorse.

Ganim was convicted in 2003 on federal corruption and bribery charges and sentenced to nine years in prison.
After Ganim was released in 2010, he worked as a legal assistant at his family’s Bridgeport law firm and has run a consulting business for others facing federal prison.
