The Importance Of Being Active

From the California Bar Journal:

[An attorney] was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years of probation with an actual 60-day suspension and he was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Dec. 25, 2008.

[The attorney]  was suspended in 2006 for failing to comply with MCLE requirements. Shortly before the suspension, he began a job with a law firm without informing anyone at the firm of his status. When his employers learned he was not entitled to practice, [he] falsely told them he was unaware of his suspension and that he had received no notice from the bar. He was fired.

He stipulated that he held himself out as entitled to practice when he was not active and he committed acts of moral turpitude.

In mitigation, [he] has no record of discipline and no clients were harmed.
