ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A state board that regulates attorneys wants a St. Paul lawyer disbarred after he missed a client’s felony trial because he was jailed on drug-possession charges.

The Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility has recommended that 51-year-old Steven Paul Lundeen be disbarred.

The petition for discipline lists a number of other alleged violations. It says a court clerk once had to wake Lundeen during a trial. It also says he twice failed to show up in court when a client was scheduled to be sentenced.

An answering machine at Lundeen’s home would not accept a message Thursday.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says the Minnesota Supreme Court will make the final decision on the petition to disbar him.
