The Brooklyn Eagle reports that Alan Young, former Busy Chef, Oven, Wine Bar at 50 Henry and Blue Pig owner (as well as other businesses at those Henry Street addresses) has been disbarred. The eateries were shuttered last year after manager Dan Kaufman was busted on charges of credit card fraud and identity theft. The case against Kaufman is still pending.
There has been no word on whether Young will be charged or is suspected of being involved in any wrong doing in the “Busted Chef” case. However, the Eagle report says that he is under investigation on another matter:
The Brooklyn Law School graduate submitted his resignation in November, acknowledging “his inability to successfully defend himself on the merits against any disciplinary charges which may be brought against him…,” according to the Appellate Division, Second Department opinion and order issued in April.
Young was being investigated by grievance committees in three separate New York judicial districts, including the Second Judicial District, for alleged “irregularities in his attorney escrow account.” The Appellate Division immediately accepted his resignation, ordered his disbarment, and demanded that he immediately surrender his attorney secure pass.
