Francis Malofiy, lawyer on side of Estate of Randy Wolfe in "Stairway to Heaven" case, suspended in Pennsylvania

See the post Lawyer Who Sued Led Zeppelin Suspended From Practicing Law

Of the case, on June 23, Larry Iser had written:

Today’s verdict in favor of Led Zeppelin is a vindication of copyright, which only protects an original expression of music. The evidence in the case was overwhelming that the accused chord progression in “Stairway to Heaven” – featuring a descending, chromatic bass line – is a common building block of classical and popular music dating back hundreds of years. As such, plaintiff Michael Skidmore was unable to prove a valid copyright as against “Stairway to Heaven.”
