September 24, 2011

SCOTT CUMMINGS McKEE, 53, of West Hollywood was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on five years of probation with a six-month actual suspension and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Sept. 24, 2011.

McKee stipulated to three acts of misconduct stemming from his representation of a client in a personal injury matter that settled for $175,000. He deposited one check for $165,000 in his client trust account and paid liens held by a previous lawyer and law firm. Although he paid a partial lien held by another previous lawyer, he did not maintain the required $12,000 in his trust account and stipulated he misappropriated that amount, committing an act of moral turpitude. He also disobeyed a court order that designated how the settlement funds were to be distributed.

McKee had been disciplined twice previously, with a private reproval in 2005 and a suspension in 2010 for failing to perform legal services competently.

In mitigation, he cooperated with the bar’s investigation, demonstrated remorse and had emotional difficulties and severe financial stress.

June 19, 2010

SCOTT CUMMINGS McKEE [#154077], 51, of West Hollywood was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on five years of probation with a 60-day actual suspension and he was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect June 19, 2010.

McKee stipulated that he did not comply with conditions attached to a 2005 private reproval that was imposed for improperly withdrawing from a case. He did not make restitution, filed four quarterly probation reports late and did not file the final report.

In mitigation, he was diagnosed in 2003 with a terminal illness and has severe financial problems, relying on Social Security, food stamps and renter’s assistance. His mental and physical conditions make it impossible to maintain a full-time law practice or make restitution.
