The web page of the Virginia State Bar reports on a recent order in a bar discipline case:
On February 26, 2010, the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board summarily suspended [an attorney's] license to practice law, based on his February 9, 2010, conviction of assault and battery of a law enforcement officer in the Chesapeake Circuit Court. The board ordered him to appear on March 26, 2010, to show cause why his license should not be further suspended or revoked.
[The attorney's] license was administratively suspended on October 9, 2009. He has been ineligible to practice law since that date.
