The grievance was filed primarily because NCFM and many others believed Kellett’s behavior violated the Maine Bar Rules. We all felt that she persecuted rather than prosecuted certain people including Vladek Filler, a man falsely accused of spousal rape and numerous other things.
You can get background on the Filler case simply by using the search box in the upper right hand corner of this page and inserting “Vladek Filler”. If you prefer, you can get the abbreviated version by reading NCFM’s original complaint here: 110328 Letter to Maine Bar re Kellett form and letter .
The following is a link to the response from the Attorney General’s Office ins defense of A.D.A Keller. Since Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) is the principle complainant the letter is addressed to them. However, the State of Maine had some choice things to say about NCFM on the last couple of pages: 110506 Kellett Response from Attorney General for Maine .
We were vindicated however, at least in meaningful part, by the finding of the Board of Overseers of the Bar investigative attorney, J. Scott Davis, who found probable cause to believe that misconduct subject to sanction occurred for which discipline should be imposed. Here’s the letter if you’d like to read it, 110803 Kellett Board of Overseers of the Bar response.
Now we wait — wait for the Bar panel’s recommendations, but we are headed in the right direction on the road to victory.
