The North Dakota Supreme Court ordered a one-month suspension of an attorney and barred her from pro hac vice admission
Meidinger was admitted to practice law in Minnesota in October 2006. Although Meidinger has never been admitted to practice in North Dakota, her law office is located in Fargo, North Dakota. Since December 2009, Meidinger has requested and been granted pro hac vice admissions in 17 matters in North Dakota courts. She was previously disciplined for violation of N.D.R. Prof. Conduct 5.5(d).
Because Meidinger has practiced law for more than five years, she is eligible to apply for admission by motion in North Dakota. In an August 2012, letter, the North Dakota State Board of Law Examiners strongly encouraged Meidinger to become licensed in North Dakota because her appearances were more than occasional. Despite that letter, Meidinger has not applied for admission in North Dakota.
The attorney did not answer the summons in the proceeding. (Mike Frisch)
