EVERETT, Wash. (AP) – A personal injury lawyer who practiced in Everett has been disbarred for violating a restraining order, lying to the state bar association and other ethical violations.
The Daily Herald reports Eric Hoort was disbarred last week after working as an attorney in Washington state for over 20 years.
In 2018 and 2019, Island County sheriff’s deputies responded to calls about fights between Hoort and the woman at their home on Camano Island.
Police incident reports show the woman reported Hoort had been using drugs and stealing her prescription medications.
The state bar association says Hoort also violated a temporary protection by emailing the woman repeatedly.
The newspaper tried unsuccessfully to reach Hoort for comment.
