MAINE

F. Lee Bailey denied bid to practice law

LEWISTON — F. Lee Bailey, the attorney who represented O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, had been denied his request to practice law in Maine.

Mr. Bailey, 79, passed the Maine bar exam last winter. He was previously licensed in Massachusetts and Florida, but was disbarred in those states for mishandling $6 million worth of stock for a client.

In a 5-4 decision, the Maine Board of Bar Examiners wrote that Mr. Bailey hadn’t demonstrated with “clear and convincing evidence that he possesses the requisite honesty and integrity” to practice law in Maine. The four dissenting board members recommended that he be allowed to practice in Maine.

The board’s decision, dated Nov. 30, was first reported Monday night by the Sun Journal of Lewiston.

Mr. Bailey has a home in Maine.

Bus crash survivors continue with trip

PENDLETON — Survivors of a fatal bus crash on a rural Oregon highway are retrieving their passports and other belongings so they can finish their journey to Canada.

State police officers escorted some survivors one-by-one Tuesday to collect their property, which was strewn across a hillside as the tour bus careened 200 feet from a partly icy roadway.

The Red Cross said many of the survivors are too scared to get on another bus, so a nearby car dealer offered to drive them in smaller passenger vehicles. Some were expected to begin the trip Wednesday.
