Two Strikes And Out

The Georgia Supreme Court disbarred an attorney who had defaulted on charges of misconduct by failing to file a Notice of Rejection. The attorney had previously been suspended for six months "with substantial conditions on reinstatement" but never became a member in good standing due to the failure to pay bar dues and take CLE. In this case, the attorney entered her appearence in a case before a court where she was not admitted without seeking pro hac vice admission. Her pleadings were stricken, including a response to summary judgment, which the court granted against her client. She thereafter failed to communicate with the client and did not return the file.
