THE FLORIDA BAR Petitioner(s) v. GEORGE JOHN FRANCIS WERNER Respondent(s)
The Florida Bar filed a Petition for Contempt alleging that the Respondent has failed to sign a FLA, Inc. contract in compliance with this Court's February 24, 2016, order. This Court issued an Order to Show Cause to the Respondent to respond by a date certain why he should not be held in contempt and suspended until such time as he fully complied with this Court's order.
