Comments Sought on Proposed Amendments to Guardian Ad Litem Cost Assessment

On February 8, 2018, the Committee on Lawyer Discipline (COLD) approved proposed amendments to Part 6, Section IV, Paragraph 13-1 and 13-9 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia. 

These proposed amendments allow the Disciplinary Board to assess fees and costs of a Guardian Ad Litem to be paid by the Respondent when the Guardian Ad Litem was appointed by the Disciplinary Board. The full proposed revisions may be read here.

Comments should be submitted in writing to Karen A. Gould, Executive Director, Virginia State Bar, at 1111 E. Main Street, Suite 700, Richmond, VA 23219-0026 or, no later than the end of the business day on March 30, 2018. The proposal and comments will be considered by VSB Council during its meeting in June.
