Attorney discipline in the Western District of Kentucky is governed by LR 83.3 and LCrR 57.3. Pursuant to these rules, any attorney practicing before the Court is subject to discipline by the Court upon a showing that the attorney is currently suspended or disbarred by any admitting or licensing authority or the attorney is guilty of unprofessional conduct in a matter pending before the Court. An attorney practicing before the Court who is publicly reprimanded, suspended, or disbarred by any admitting or licensing authority must inform the Clerk in writing of the public reprimand, suspension, or disbarment within ten (10) days after the effective date of any such public reprimand, suspension, or disbarment.
Upon reinstatement of an attorney by any admitting or licensing authority, the attorney shall provide to the Clerk written notice from the admitting or licensing authority confirming the reinstatement. The Clerk of Court shall then transmit the confirmation to the Chief Judge who shall determine whether the attorney may be reinstated to practice before the Court.
Notice regarding discipline and requests for reinstatement may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
