128 P.3d 1083
Case Number: SCBD-4930
Decided: 09/12/2005

THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA

IN THE MATTER OF THE STRIKING OF NAMES OF MEMBERS OF THE OKLAHOMA BAR ASSOCIATION FOR NONPAYMENT OF 2004 DUES

ORDER STRIKING NAMES

[¶1] Now on this 19h day of August, 2005, there came on for consideration the Application for Order Striking Names by the Board of Governors of the Oklahoma Bar Association petitioning for the striking of names of attorneys from the membership rolls of the Oklahoma Bar Association and from the practice of law in the State of Oklahoma for failure to pay dues as members of the Oklahoma Bar Association for the year 2004.

[¶2] It appears to the Court that the Board of Governors at their August 19, 2005, meeting, in compliance with Article VIII, §5 of the Rules Creating and Controlling the Oklahoma Bar Association, 5 O.S., Ch. 1, App. 1 (1981), established that the hereinafter named members of the Oklahoma Bar Association were suspended from membership in the Association and from the practice of law in the State of Oklahoma by Order of this Court in Case No. S.C.B.D. 4930 on July 1, 2004. It further appears to the Court that the Board of Governors have determined that no application for reinstatement has been filed by said members within one year of suspension. In addition, it appears to the Court that on August 19, 2005, the Board of Governors declared that the members hereinafter set out on the attached Exhibit ceased to be members of said Association and therefore ordered the names of said members be stricken from the membership rolls of the Oklahoma Bar Association.

[¶3] THE COURT THEREFORE FINDS that the actions of the Board of Governors of the Oklahoma Bar Association are in compliance with the Rules Creating and Controlling the Oklahoma Bar Association, that the Application for Order to Strike Names should be sustained, and that the following attorneys should be and are hereby stricken from the membership rolls of the Oklahoma Bar Association and from the practice of law in the State of Oklahoma, for failure to pay their dues as members of the Association for the year 2004.

DONE BY ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT IN CONFERENCE THIS 12th DAY OF SEPTEMBER, 2005.
