LEWISTON, Maine —

F. Lee Bailey, the attorney who represented O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst, has been denied his request to practice law in Maine.

The 79-year-old Bailey passed the Maine bar exam last winter. He was previously licensed in Massachusetts and Florida but was disbarred in those states for mishandling $6 million worth of stock for a client.

In a 5-4 decision, the Maine Board of Bar Examiners wrote that Bailey hadn't demonstrated by "clear and convincing evidence that he possesses the requisite honesty and integrity" to practice law in Maine. The four dissenting board members recommended that he be allowed to practice in Maine.

The board's decision, dated Nov. 30, was first reported Monday night by the Sun Journal ( http://bit.ly/UiTNMb) of Lewiston.

Bailey has a home in Maine. A phone listing for him could not be found.
