Counsel for Discipline v. KeithAnnotate this Case
Disciplinary charges against Keith, who was admitted to the Nebraska bar in 2003, alleged that he had failed to pay his bar dues for 2012. While the issue was pending, a client claimed that Keith neglect his representation in forming a business. The charges included Neb. Ct. R. of Prof. Cond. 3-501.3 (diligence), 3-508.1(b) (bar admission and disciplinary matters), and 3-508.4(a), (c), and (d) (misconduct). The Nebraska Supreme Court continued Keith’s suspension from the practice of law until January 1, 2014. Any application for reinstatement must demonstrate that he has paid all delinquent dues to the Nebraska State Bar Association; has completed at least 10 hours of continuing legal education, including 2 hours of ethics or professional responsibility instruction, within 12 months immediately preceding the date of application; has reimbursed his client all funds previously paid as fees; and has paid all costs assessed against him.
