Return To Sender

In Hawaii, when the Supreme Court orders an attorney to surrender their law license, they literally mean that you are supposed to return the original. Hence, the following order:

Upon consideration of J. Michael Dwyer's June 1, 2009 Letter to Lyn Flanigan and Naomi Komenaka, it appears that Petitioner Dwyer states that he is unable to return his original license to practice law to the Clerk of this court, as required by our April 9, 2009, order granting petition to resign and surrender license, because he may have lost the license. Therefore,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk shall accept Petitioner Dwyer's June 1, 2009, letter in lieu of the original certificate evidencing his license to practice law in this State. If Petitioner Dwyer finds the original certificate evidencing his license to practice law in this State, he shall immediately deposit the same with the Clerk of this court.

DATED: Honolulu, Hawai‘i, July 1, 2009.
