Erie Lawyer Disbarred

An Erie lawyer has been disbarred after pleading guilty to charges of forgery and theft.

Investigators said 32 year old Robert Barbato collected settlement-type checks and failed to forward them to his clients.

Barbato will no longer be able to practice law in the state starting December 17th.

The order to disbar was handed down Tuesday by the Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
