Ficker's Law License Restored

Low-tax activist Robin Ficker reports that he is back in action in the courtroom and "on a roll."

The Maryland Court of Appeals last week issued an order reinstating Ficker's law license. The court had suspended his license last year after three complaints from clients who said Ficker failed to properly represent them in criminal cases.

In his first appearance last Friday, representing a client in a hit-and-run case in District Court in Silver Spring, Ficker's client was found not guilty. Ficker said also he plans to keep up his real estate business, which he used to help spread the word about his successful ballot measure in November to make it harder for the council to surpass the local limit on property tax revenue.

Congratulations to Mr. Ficker. This was a quick turnaround by an overloaded court, so the decision must have been easy to determine. Now the challenge will be for the skillful Ficker to balance his time between the demands of practicing law, and the demands we citizens have of him to continue pursuing his goals in our interests. Keep it up, Robin!

Go Robin, sue the county for misfeasance and fraud waste and abuse for the way they handle our money and for their property tax hikes!
