Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit: "Much of (Maksym's) writing is little more than gibberish"

That is from a story by Steve Schmadeke in the Chicago Tribune headed "Drew Peterson attorney criticized by federal appeals court for his work on another case: Lawyer filed 'unintelligible' papers on behalf of McHenry County landing strip, judges say." More:

A federal appeals court on Monday took one of Drew Peterson's attorneys to task for the way he handled a McHenry County case, finding in a strongly worded opinion that the lawyer repeatedly filed "unintelligible" court papers that were "riddled with errors" and "flagrantly disobeyed" court instructions.

A 7th Circuit Court of Appeals panel said it was forwarding its ruling to Illinois' disciplinary body for attorneys and ordering Peterson attorney Walter Maksym to show why he shouldn't be barred from practicing before the court.
