Attorney suspended over clients’ sex allegations

The Detroit News is reporting:

The Attorney Discipline Board has suspended an 83-year-old attorney after he allegedly asked his female clients to work off their legal fees by performing sex acts on his “couch of restitution.”

The board suspended the St. Clair Shores attorney, Murdoch Hertzog, for 180 days on Nov. 23 after three former clients testified he told them he would forgive or discount their legal bills if they engaged in the acts.

Hertzog denied the allegations in an interview Tuesday, saying the clients made up the stories. He cited his age and lack of sexual vigor as evidence the allegations are absurd.
