Respondent Deloris A. Brown was the subject of two disciplinary actions against her by the State Bar Court of California. In the first action, respondent was suspended from the practice of law for sixty days and placed on two years’ probation for misappropriating client funds and other misconduct. Respondent then faced allegations in the second action that she actively represented a client during her suspension and perjuriously denied doing so in an affidavit filed with the court.

See In re Goldsborough, 654 A.2d 1285, 1288 (D.C. 1995). Accordingly, it is hereby
