SIGNIFICANT APPELLATE DECISIONS:

In the Matter of Respondent Q. (Review Dept. 1994) 3 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr.18.
The hearing department of the California State Bar Court restricted the State Bar
Investigators from contacting non-complaining clients (based upon privileged
information). The Review Department ruled that such a restriction was beyond
the Court's jurisdiction and contact could not be prohibited. (Rule of Procedure
2410, prohibiting such contact was implemented the following year.)

In the Matter of Edmund C. Ike (Review Dept. 1996) 3 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr.
483. The Review Department upheld the Hearing Judge's recommendation to
revoke a lawyer's license to practice law based on his failure to update his State
Bar application to reveal that he was awaiting trial on eleven felony counts. The
attorney raised several procedural and due process issues.

In re Attorney Discipline System (1998) California, 19 Cal. 4th 582. The
California Supreme Court sought comment on its authority to impose a fee for
discipline. Drafted and submitted American Professional Responsibility Lawyer's
response, supporting the Court's inherent authority to discipline attorneys.

Manfredi & Levine v. Superior Court of Ventura (1998) 66 Cal. App. 4th 1128; 78
Cal. Rptr. 2d 494. Appellate opinion addressed issues as to the appropriate
procedures to follow when an attorney discovers an absolute conflict of interest
involving a client while in the midst of an arbitration, how the attorney should
handle withdrawal, and the role the court should assume.

In the Matter of Clifford R. Weber (Review Dept. 1998) 1998 Cal. Op. Lexis 17.
Issue was the State Bar Court's role in motions for summary disbarment based on
a felony conviction (due to a change in the relevant statute in 1996) although
numerous members of the community, including the Federal Judge who
adjudicated the criminal case declared that disbarment was not justified in this
case.

In re Blum (Review Dept. 2002) Cal. Bar Ct. Review Dept., No. 96-O-03531.
The Review Department recommended that a lawyer found to be emotionally
incapable of confronting her physically and psychologically abusive husband/
law partner about irregularities in the firm's trust accounts should receive a 30-day
suspension instead of a more severe sanction.
