Oklahoma City attorney disbarred after new charges are filed
Oklahoma City attorney Lewis B. Moon has been banned from practicing law after being charged again with crimes.
In Logan County District Court, Moon faces a misdemeanor charge of posing as a police officer.
In Oklahoma County District Court, he faces felony counts of attempted extortion and threatening a violent act and a misdemeanor count of assault and battery. He is accused in the felony case of trying to force attorney James Pasquali to repay a legal fee to another man at the bar.
Pasquali testified at a disciplinary hearing that Moon threatened to run a pen through his neck.
“He said, ‘I'll put you through a shredder.' He said, ‘Nobody will ever find anything of you except for your tooth.'” Pasquali testified. “This went on and on and on … Every time I tried to get up he'd grab me … and he'd jerk me back down in the chair and pull me down. He'd pull me real close to his face … I felt like he was very dangerous and I felt very much in fear of my life.”
