An update on a North Carolina bar matter that we previously reported:
Gary Kivett of Spruce Pine made unwanted sexual advances to multiple clients. The DHC suspended Kivett for four years. After serving one year active suspension, he may apply for a stay of the balance upon his compliance with numerous conditions, including providing certifications from two psychiatrists or psychologists who specialize in treating sexual offenders that, based upon their independent comprehensive evaluations, in their professional opinions Kivett does not suffer from any condition creating a predisposition for inappropriate sexual behavior and does not suffer from any mental, psychological, or emotional condition that significantly impairs his professional judgment, performance, or competence.
