Legal woes piling up for leader of Georgia Democrats

Legal woes are piling up for the leader of Georgia’s Democratic Party.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a lawsuit filed in Gwinnett County this week accuses Mike Berlon of failing to distribute nearly $1 million from a trust he created for a friend and his son.

Berlon told the newspaper the lawsuit resulted from a miscommunication after he put the funds in long-term investments. He says he hopes to reach a settlement in the case by next week.

Earlier this week, the Georgia Supreme Court accepted Berlon’s petition for voluntary discipline for violating legal ethics rules in a child support case.
