The Supreme Court said the video showed Moon “repeatedly demanding to be taken to Oklahoma County jail; being uncooperative, abusive, belligerent and offensive to officers; threatening the officers’ jobs; indicating that all charges will be dropped because of the judges, district attorneys, city and state officials, and other influential people he knows; and asserting that he will be filing civil suits against the officers.”

Moon also pleaded guilty in 2009 to a drunken driving charge in Wyoming and no contest in 2011 to traffic tickets after an accident on an Oklahoma turnpike, records show.

The Supreme Court warned Moon in its public censure that he would be suspended from practicing law for two years if he has any more problems.

Four justices disagreed with the censure, saying he should have been suspended immediately.

Police report attorney used racial slur

In the newest case, police reported Moon threatened to send men to Pasquali’s house to rape and kill Pasquali’s daughter. Police reported Moon used a racial slur to describe the men he would send.

The particular slur is often referred to as the N-word.

Police reported Dodd promised to “call him off” if Pasquali just paid the money.

Police reported Pasquali explained that someone else in his firm had represented Dodd’s son and promised to “check into it,” but Dodd refused to accept the explanation.

“It was bizarre,” Pasquali told The Oklahoman on Monday.

“It caused me great concern for my own safety and that of my family and especially my children. We have taken precautions in both our home and the office. We take these threats very seriously.

“I had considered L.B. a friend prior to this incident,” Pasquali said.

He told police that Moon, while making the threats, quoted from the gangster movie, “Casino,” according to the police report.

Two men also face charges in other case

Moon also is facing a misdemeanor charge in Logan County District Court.

He is accused there of impersonating a police officer in May and disturbing the peace.

Dodd is charged in Logan County District Court in the same incident with disturbing the peace.
