IN RE: Rock C. LEE, Respondent

Supreme Court Case No. 20S-DI-322

Decided: June 28, 2021

Published Order Converting Respondent's Suspension to Without Automatic Reinstatement

This disciplinary action against Respondent was resolved by this Court's approval of a Conditional Agreement under which Respondent was suspended from the practice of law for 180 days with automatic reinstatement, effective January 14, 2021. Respondent's suspension is due to expire on July 12, 2021. On April 16, 2021, the Commission filed an “Objection to Automatic Reinstatement,” which it subsequently amended. The Commission's amended objection and attached exhibits reflect a repeated and systemic failure by Respondent to comply with the duties of suspended attorneys under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26) and with the terms of our disciplinary order. On May 20, 2021, we ordered Respondent to file a response within ten days, which Respondent has not done.

Being duly advised, the Court sustains the Commission's amended objection. For Respondent's violations, the Court converts Respondent's current suspension to a 180-day suspension without automatic reinstatement, effective January 14, 2021.

Respondent is ordered to fulfill the continuing duties of a suspended attorney under Rule 23(26). To be readmitted to the practice of law in this State, Respondent must cure the causes of all suspensions in effect and successfully petition this Court for reinstatement pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(18)(b).

All Justices concur.
