SAN FRANCISCO (Northern California Record) — Camarillo attorney Arthur Mark Feuerborn faces suspension and probation following a July 11 California Supreme Court order over multiple allegations, according to a recent State Bar of California announcement and court documents.

Feuerborn was alleged to have failed to comply with court orders, report court-ordered sanctions and committed acts involving moral turpitude dishonesty or corruption, according to an announcement recently posted on the state bar's website

The state Supreme Court handed down a stayed one-year suspension and two years' conditional probation with the first 90 days spent on suspension. Conditions of Feuerborn's probation include passing the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination as previously recommended by the California State Bar Court's hearing department.

His discipline will be effective Aug. 10, according to the state bar's announcement.

Feuerborn was admitted to the bar in California on June 5, 2001, according to his profile at the state bar website. He had no prior discipline before the state bar, according to his profile.

Allegations against Feuerborn stem from a bankruptcy case that commenced in 2012 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Florida's Southern District, West Palm Beach Division, according to the stipulation filed with the state bar court in April.

"The bankruptcy case involved an insolvent and fraudulent investment scheme concerning the sale to investors in Europe of indirect interests in life insurance policies insuring the lives of American individuals," the stipulation said.

Feuerborn allegedly failed to comply with October 2015, December 2015 and February 2016 court orders and to "maintain the respect due to the courts," the stipulation said.

Feuerborn, among other matters, also knowingly made false and misleading statements to the trustee and failed to report to the state bar about $310,000 in sanctions against him, according to the stipulation.

"In total, the court in the bankruptcy case determined that [Feuerborn] caused the loss of over $260,000 to the estate in the bankruptcy case," the stipulation said.
