SURRENDER OF LAW LICENSE
On recommendation of the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct, we
hereby accept the voluntary surrender, in lieu of probable disbarment proceedings, of the
license of Steven Eugene Cauley, of Little Rock, Arkansas, to practice law in the State of
Arkansas. Mr. Cauley is set to enter a guilty plea to one count of felony wire fraud and one
count of criminal contempt in the United States District Court for the Southern District of
New York on June 1, 2009. In his petition to surrender, filed with this court on May 14,
2009, he acknowledged failure to pay over certain funds he held as a fiduciary and escrow
agent for the plaintiffs obtained in a settlement of securities litigation in New York. Mr.
Cauley self-reported his actions to the Committee and acknowledged his conduct violated
Rules 8.4(b) and (c) of the Arkansas Rules of Professional Conduct. The name of Steven
Eugene Cauley shall be removed from the registry of licensed attorneys, and he is barred and
enjoined from engaging in the practice of law in this state.
It is so ordered.
