IN THE MATTER OF THE SUSPENSION OF MEMBERS OF THE OKLAHOMA BAR ASSOCIATION FOR NONCOMPLIANCE WITH MANDATORY CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR THE YEAR 2013

ORDER OF SUSPENSION FOR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE RULES
FOR MANDATORY CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION

On June 2, 2014, the Oklahoma Bar Association's Board of Governors filed a recommendation for the suspension of its members who failed to comply with mandatory legal education requirements for the year 2013 as required by Rules 3 and 5 of the Rules for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE Rules), 5 O.S. 2011, ch. 1, app. 1-B. The Board of Governors recommended that the members whose names appear on the list attached to the recommendation be suspended from membership in the Oklahoma Bar Association and from the practice of law in the State of Oklahoma, as provided by Rule 6 of the MCLE Rules.

This Court finds that on March 14, 2014, the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Bar Association mailed, by certified mail, an Order to Show Cause within sixty days why the member's license to practice law in the State of Oklahoma should not be suspended to all Oklahoma Bar Association members not in compliance with Rules 3 and 5 of the MCLE Rules. The Board of Governors has found that the Oklahoma Bar Association's members named on Exhibit A of its recommendation have not shown good cause why the member's license to practice law in the State of Oklahoma and Oklahoma Bar Association membership should not be suspended.

This Court, having considered the Board of Governors' recommendation and motion, finds that each of the Oklahoma Bar Association's members named on Exhibit A, attached hereto, should be suspended.

It is therefore ordered that the attorneys named on Exhibit A, attached hereto, are hereby suspended from membership in the Association and from the practice of law in the State of Oklahoma for failure to comply with the MCLE Rules for the year 2013.

DONE BY ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT IN CONFERENCE on this 16th day of June, 2014.
