Respondent Henschel shall remain on inactive status until further order of this court but may, at her discretion, apply to this court for a return to active status, pursuant to RSCH Rule 2.19(f), upon submission of evidence that she is fit to resume the practice of law. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that ODC shall suspend and hold in abeyance proceedings against Respondent Henschel to the extent required by RSCH Rule 2.19(h). IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Disciplinary Board shall, pursuant to RSCH Rule 2.19(d), cause a notice of this transfer to inactive status to be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the judicial circuit in which Respondent Henschel maintained her practice. IT IS FINALLY ORDERED that the clerk of the court, pursuant to RSCH Rule 2.19(e), shall transmit a certified copy of this order to all judges of the State of Hawai#i and shall request their assistance and such action as may be indicated, pursuant to RSCH Rule 2.20, to protect the interests of both Respondent Henschel and her clients.
