N.D. Supreme Court suspends Overboe

The North Dakota Supreme Court issued an interim suspension Monday against a West Fargo lawyer accused of asking clients to exchange sex for payment of legal bills.

The North Dakota Supreme Court issued an interim suspension Monday against a West Fargo lawyer accused of asking clients to exchange sex for payment of legal bills.

David Ardell Overboe, 63, of Kindred, N.D., has a pattern of meeting with female clients after hours, offering alcohol and making inappropriate comments to them and having sexual contact with them, according to the Supreme Court's Disciplinary Board.

The behavior represents professional misconduct and violates state codes regulating conflicts of interest, the board claims. The Supreme Court ordered the suspension effective immediately. It will remain in effect during the disciplinary process.

Overboe has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges filed in Cass County.

Overboe, who has practiced law since 1972, saw his license suspended for 90 days in 1988 after taking money from a client's trust fund and writing a worthless check in an attempt to pay back part of it.
