A New Era In The District of Columbia

The long-awaited amendments to the rules governing bar disciplinary procedure in the District of Columbia have been issued by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. I will be posting comments after I have had the opportunity to review the changes. Of particular interest is the new Rule XI, section 12 which sets out new procedures for consent dispositions involving discipline other than consent to disbarments. This was the most controversial issue in the lenghty debate over a variety of proposed rule changes. It appears that the court did not adopt the rule revisions (in my view, unworkable) concerning consent dispositions that had been proposed by the Bar's Disciplinary System Study Committee.
