Edward Fagan, a Morris Plains attorney who represented Holocaust survivors in multimillion-dollar claims against the Swiss government, is one step closer to being disbarred in New Jersey.

Concluding that “clear and convincing evidence establishes” that Fagan knowingly misappropriated some $400,000 of his clients’ funds, retired Superior Court Judge Arthur Minuskin recommended the attorney be stripped of his license to practice law.
