DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit-area lawyer with a record of misconduct has been disbarred after he was accused of forging another attorney's signature on documents at the Michigan appeals court. The case was discovered by Abbey Lent, a student at University of Michigan law school. Robert Slameka's law license was taken away Tuesday by a panel at the Attorney Discipline Board. He didn't appear at the hearing. A message seeking comment was left for him. The Attorney Grievance Commission says Slameka in 2011 accepted $7,500 to handle an appeal for a man convicted of carjacking and other crimes. He was accused of filing court documents under the name of another attorney, Matthew Evans. It occurred just before Slameka began serving a 90-day suspension for misconduct in another matter. Evans says he never worked on the case.
