Gordon Caplan, the former Willkie Farr & Gallagher co-chairman and the most prominent attorney swept up as a defendant in the college admissions bribery scandal, has been reinstated to the New York state bar after a two-year suspension.

Caplan’s reinstatement was ordered Tuesday by an intermediate appellate court based in Manhattan that issued an order saying he was “reinstated as an attorney and counselor-at-law.” The order also noted that both a court-system attorney grievance committee and the state Lawyer’s Fund for Client Protection had not opposed Caplan’s reinstatement.
