Ky. high court suspends lawyer charged with attempted murder

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A West Virginia attorney charged with attempted murder has been indefinitely suspended from practicing law in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Supreme Court on Thursday ordered Mark A. Bramble of Charleston, West Virginia, barred from acting as an attorney while criminal charges are pending against him and a suspension of his law license is in effect in the neighboring state.

Bramble is charged with pointing a gun at a woman and firing shots at police. Police say Bramble may have been hallucinating during the incident.

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals handed down the open-ended suspension in August of 2013.

Both courts found that criminal charges against Bramble and his alleged behavior could pose a threat to his clients and their legal representation.
