Bruce Pelkey, a former Regent law professor, has lost his law license for “blatant dishonesty” arising out of a romance and business deals that both went sour.
The Examiner reports that Pelkey got ex-girlfriend, Linda Cavalli, to contribute about $32,000 of her own money to a group of international companies the two ran in the mid-1990s. After the romance ended, Cavalli discovered that Pelkey had tried to erase her from the business partnerships. She sued, demanding her money back, and the couple entered extensive litigation.
Pelkey denied that he’d been in business or romantically involved with her, according to court papers.
