The state Supreme Court today upheld the disbarment of Mark Vanderveen, a Boy Scout and small-town cop who rose to become a deputy Seattle city attorney, assistant Snohomish County prosecutor, and pro-tem judge in Edmonds. He was stripped of his bar card in 2006 after playing a role in the drug-and-money-washing case of cocaine kingpin and Ultimate Fighter Rob Kesling. Two other attorneys, including one who once ran for the Supreme Court, were convicted in the 2005 federal case here. (Yet another local attorney was convicted in a related drug-and-moneywash case that year, memorable for the fact that he and his drug-dealing client bought an actual Queen Anne laundromat to launder money).
