3.10 Terms of Judgment
Back to Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure
In any judgment of disbarment or suspension that is not stayed, the court shall order the Respondent to surrender his or her law license and permanent State Bar card to Chief Disciplinary Counsel for transmittal to the Clerk of the Supreme Court. In all judgments imposing disbarment or suspension, the court shall enjoin the Respondent from practicing law or from holding himself or herself out as an attorney eligible to practice law during the period of disbarment or suspension. In all judgments of disbarment, suspension, or reprimand, the court shall make all other orders as it finds appropriate, including probation of all or any portion of suspension. The continuing jurisdiction of the trial court to enforce a judgment does not give a trial court authority to terminate or reduce a period of active or probated suspension previously ordered.
