Francis Michael Deslauriers, of Tipton County, received a public censure on April 20 from the Board of Professional Responsibility. Deslauriers was hired to represent a client in a suit against an insurance company, but in more than three years he took little action other than filing the suit and routinely failed to communicate with his client. Later the suit was dismissed. The censure is a warning but does not affect Deslauriers’ ability to practice law.
