Rudy Giuliani’s Washington DC Law License Suspended
Less than two weeks after New York State suspended his ability to practice law, ex-President Donald Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani had his Washington, DC law license suspended by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on Wednesday afternoon.
“On consideration of a certified copy of an order of the Supreme Court of New York, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department, suspending respondent from the practice of law pending further disciplinary proceedings in that state, it is ORDERED pursuant to D.C. Bar Rule XI, § 11(d), that the respondent is suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pending final disposition of this proceeding, effective on the date of entry of this order,” the one-page ruling states.
“It is FURTHER ORDERED that this proceeding is hereby stayed pending the resolution of the disciplinary matter in New York. It is FURTHER ORDERED that while this matter is stayed, Disciplinary Counsel shall file, at a minimum, annual reports on the status of the disciplinary proceedings in New York,” the order continues. “It is FURTHER ORDERED that respondent’s attention is drawn to the requirement of Rule XI, § 14 relating to suspended attorneys and to the provisions of Rule XI, § 16(c) dealing with the timing of eligibility for reinstatement as related to compliance with Rule XI, § 14, including the filing of the required affidavit.”
Simply put, the court ruled that Giuliani is forbidden from lawyering in the nation’s capital until his suspension in New York is resolved.
Trump only hires the best people, after all.
