Scooter Disbarred!

Update: (Mar. 21st) • Before moving on for the day, my friend Nolo at ‘Indict Dick Cheney‘ points me over to Empty Wheel’s follow-up question on Scooter’s disbarment. It’s succinct –

Oh, look – Scooter can’t practice law (in D.C.) any longer.

The D.C. Court of Appeals issued it’s two page opinion today (PDF form).

DCCA Opinion No. 07-BG-179: In re I. L. Libby

ORDERED that I. Lewis Libby, Jr. is disbarred from the practice of law in the District of Columbia, and his name shall be stricken from the roll of attorneys authorized to practice before this court. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that for purposes of reinstatement respondent’s disbarment will run from the date on which he filed an affidavit which conforms to the requirements of D.C. Bar R. XI, § 14 (g). *

* As noted on the Court’s website, that date was June 12, 2007.

CNN has a short blip.

“When a member of the Bar is convicted of an offense involving moral turpitude, disbarment is mandatory. …….. When convictions on more than one count are involved, disbarment is mandated if any one of them involves moral turpitude,” the court added.

  1. A day late and a dollar short, it’s only in DC?
    Shoot.

  2. True enough – BUT – he has to pass the bar elsewhere, OB.

    Besides where else would he go? Wyoming?
