Major changes have come to attorney discipline in New York. New statewide rules governing attorney discipline procedures were implemented on Oct. 1, 2016. The new uniform rules are set forth in 22 NYCRR Part 1240. In previous columns, published prior to the effective date of the new rules, I addressed two main areas: (1) formal proceedings, described in the uniform rules as “Proceedings in the Appellate Division;” and, (2) informal proceedings, which the new rules refer to as “Proceedings Before Committees.” Now that the uniform rules have been implemented, in this column I will address some highlights of “related proceedings” under the new regime, i.e., diversion, interim suspension, criminal convictions, collateral estoppel, and reinstatements.
