A Virginia federal judge has prevented prominent Dallas attorney William Brewer III from representing the NRA in a contract dispute with an insurance company after the lawyer failed to disclose to the court that he was sanctioned for ethical violations in Texas.

Brewer, who is not licensed in Virginia, filed a pro hac vice application on June 19 in National Rifle Association v. Lockton seeking approval to make an appearance. In it, Brewer promised that he had “not been reprimanded in any court nor has there been any action in any court pertaining to my conduct or fitness as a member of the bar.”
