As Gov. Spitzer resigned just now, effective Monday, news organizations and blogs are speculating on possible disbarment to come. One brief post which helpfully lays out the law from NY (and notes the complication of federal charges mirroring state crimes, as Mike has commented on here in another context) is by Bainbridge on his blog here. Realistically, he will not be disbarred, and anyone who speculates that he will is like a commenter on criminal sentencing who only looks at the highly-hypothetical max, and not the grid guidelines typical for such offenses.
