A Danbury civil rights attorney claims state courts have discriminated against her by failing to set a date to reinstate her law license, even as she has been reinstated in the federal court system.

U.S. District Chief Judge Stefan Underhill of the District of Connecticut ruled May 3 that enough time had lapsed since Josephine Smalls Miller’s initial one-year suspension in November 2018 that she be allowed to practice in the federal courts immediately. Miller is still not permitted to practice in state courts.
