PHOENIX — Laurence "Kirk" Nurmi, who was dragged to the depths of social-media infamy for representing killer Jodi Arias during her two highly publicized trials, has signed an agreement to be suspended from practicing law for four years because he published a book about the case.Late last month, the Attorney Discipline Probable Cause Committee of the Arizona Supreme Court authorized the State Bar of Arizona to file a formal complaint against Nurmi. Rather than face a disciplinary hearing and possible disbarment, Nurmi entered into a consent agreement with the Bar.The agreement, which has yet to be approved by the Arizona attorney disciplinary judge, claims that Nurmi violated attorney ethics rules by revealing the content of confidential conversations he had with Arias and her family, and by revealing evidence that had been ruled inadmissible by the trial judge. The agreement also notes that Nurmi made disparaging remarks about Arias over the course of the book and in subsequent media interviews promoting it. Such ethical lapses could be punished by disbarment.  Click USA Today to read the entire article.
