PORTLAND, Maine — Celebrity lawyer F. Lee Bailey is going to have to wait a few months to find out if he can practice law in Maine, where he hopes to restart his legal career.
The Board of Bar Examiners has appealed a Maine Supreme Judicial Court justice’s decision allowing Bailey to set up a law practice, meaning there will be additional court filings and a hearing that could carry the process into the fall.
Bailey, 80, said he hopes to eventually resume trial work, as he had throughout a legal career that included high-profile clients like O.J. Simpson.
He said he had all but abandoned the idea of working as a lawyer after being disbarred in Florida and Massachusetts and becoming disillusioned with the profession.
