Justices drop emergency suspension against Howe

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - An interim suspension has been lifted against a Grand Forks attorney who was cleared on charges he conspired to kill a confidential informant, but Henry Howe won't be able to practice law for a few more months.

The criminal complaint accusing the 73-year-old Howe first of murder conspiracy and then of witness tampering was dropped last month after the credibility of a key witness was questioned. Howe was suspended on Jan. 31.

The state Supreme Court last week approved a motion by its disciplinary counsel to drop the interim suspension resulting from the conspiracy charge, but noted that Howe must still serve out another suspension stemming from an immigration case.

The court in March banned Howe from practicing for six months when justices ruled he failed to provide proper representation.
