Lawyer who represented Detroit underwear bomber says he's suspended for 6 months
Anthony Chambers reveals suspension, but not details of why; Suspension not related to his work with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab
A Detroit attorney who represented the underwear bomber says his law license has been suspended for six months.
Anthony Chambers made the disclosure in a court filing Monday. He informed a federal judge in the case of a mid-Michigan man who is charged with killing a 4-year-old boy on an Indian reservation.
No other details were disclosed, but Chambers' suspension is not related to his work for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. He is the African who is serving a life sentence for trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner with a bomb in his underwear.
A message seeking comment was left for Chambers Tuesday.
He's been representing Anthony Bennett, who is charged with killing his girlfriend's son near Mount Pleasant. The next court hearing is May 9.
