In this attorney disciplinary case, The Florida Bar accuses Mr. Schwartz of violating Rule Regulating The Florida Bar 4-4.2(a), which prohibits a lawyer from communicating with an individual who he knows is represented by counsel, and Rule Regulating The Florida Bar 4-8.4(d), providing that a lawyer shall not engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice. The referee recommends that Mr. Schwartz be found guilty of violating both rules and that he receive a 90-day suspension. The Bar seeks review of the recommended discipline, arguing that Mr. Schwartz should be disbarred. Mr. Schwartz seeks review of both the referee’s recommendations as to guilt and the sanction to be imposed.
