Springfield attorney and Ward 5 alderman Sam Cahnman has received a censure from the Illinois Supreme Court.
The move follows a recommendation the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission made last year. The Commission says Cahnman intentionally misled an Associate Circuit Judge about how he gained possession of a page from the judge's private calendar. Cahnman has denied that charge.
James Grogan is with the Commission. He says Illinois' high court issues a censure when there has been a violation of the lawyer's ethics code.
