Proposed | amendments to Paragraph 13-26 regarding appeals from Disciplinary Board determinations (pending review by the Supreme Court of Virginia)
On March 7, 2012, the Committee on Lawyer Discipline (COLD) approved the proposed amendments. New language adds a cross-reference to Rule 5:28 of the Rules of Court which allows the Virginia State Bar to file assignments of cross-error in the event that a respondent appeals a disciplinary action to the Supreme Court of Virginia. Also added is a cross-reference to Rule 5:21(b) of the Rules of Court which sets forth specific procedures for perfecting and prosecuting appeals from the Disciplinary Board and three-judge circuit courts. Because Supreme Court Rule 5:21(b) overrides existing language in Paragraph 13-26, that language has been removed.
