DAVID A. BAKER
IN SUPREME COURT
KENTUCKY BAR ASSOCIATION
OPINION AND ORDER
Movant, David A. Baker, was admitted to the practice of law in the
Commonwealth Of Kentucky on October 21, 1994. His bar roster address is
P.O. Box 5933, Louisville, Kentucky 40255, and his bar number is 85513.
Movant was suspended from the practice of law for nonpayment of dues on
December 28, 2009. Movant filed an application for restoration of membership
under SCR 3.500 on April 4, 2011, and the Respondent, through its Board of
Governors, has no objection and recommends restoration.
Movant is also licensed to practice in Mississippi where he lived and
practiced law between 2003 and 2009. In November of 2009, Movant moved to
Louisville and was employed in a non-legal occupation. Movant's application
for restoration was presented to the Board of Governors for review and it found
said application complete after the Executive Director waived the requirement
that Movant submit three Kentucky attorney affidavits and three client
affidavits (because Movant has not practiced in Kentucky since 2003). The
Board also found that Movant: has paid all the required fees for restorationincluding back dues and filing fees; is current with his CLE requirements for
the year ending June 30, 2011; has no pending discipline matters; and has not
been the subject of a claim with the client security fund. By a vote of 18 to 0,
the Board of Governors recommends restoration. We agree for the reasons
found by the Board of Governors as authorized by SCR 3.500. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Movant, David A. Baker, is hereby
restored to the practice of law in the Commonwealth on these conditions:
1. Complete his CLE requirement for the 2011-2012 year and be re-certified
by the CLE Commission before restoration;
2. Pay any membership dues, if any, that may have become due since his
application for restoration has been filed; and
3. Pay the costs of this proceeding, as certified by the Disciplinary Clerk, in
the amount of $126.79.
All sitting. All concur.
ENTERED: August 25, 2011.
