Those who are interested in how Arizona is progressing with its new Presiding Disciplinary Judge format for attorney discipline should visit the new web page.
The page had links to bar discipline decisions under the new regime. It appears that things are going well--note that there are a number of approved consent sanctions.
Readers will note my oft-expressed concerns about the difficulty of achieving consent sanctions in the District of Columbia. No such problem in Arizona. For an example, see the case at this link. D.C. could never resolve such a case on a consensual basis. (Mike Frisch)
