An attorney who was suspended in 2004 in North Carolina filed a motion to correct the bar's records, claiming that he should be listed as reinstated after five years.
The North Carolina Court of Appeals disagreed, finding that the motion was an impermissible collateral attack on the order of suspension. If the movant wants to be reinstated, he must petition under the governing rules and meet the reinstatement criteria. (Mike Frisch)
