In the first stage of its first major roundup of delinquent attorneys in nearly a decade, the Appellate Division, 1st Department, has suspended 815 lawyers for failing to re-register and to pay their fees.
“This Court has previously held that failure to register or re-register, and pay the biennial registration fee constitutes professional misconduct warranting discipline,” the unanimous panel held in its per curiam decision, Matter of Attorneys Who Are in Violation of Judiciary Law Section 458-a, M-3061. “The attorneys in question have been duly notified of their noncompliance and given an opportunity to cure their default.”
