No Relief

A dissatisfied former client sued his attorney for malpractice and also sought as relief an order compelling the Montana Office of Disciplinary Counsel and Commission on Practice to suspend the attorney.

The Montana Supreme Court held that the trial court has no authority to take action against the attorney's license: 

...we hold that the District Court was correct in concluding that it does not have the authority to compel the ODC or the COP to take action of any kind.

The client's complaint to the ODC had been dismissed. (Mike Frisch)
