11.07 Appeal and Readmission
Back to Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure
When a judgment has been signed in any proceeding under this part, the petitioner and the Commission shall each have a right of appeal. If the petition is granted and an appeal is perfected, the trial court’s judgment shall be stayed pending resolution of the appeal. After the petitioner has complied with the terms of the judgment of reinstatement and with this part, he or she shall furnish the Commission with a certified copy of the judgment and evidence of compliance and shall pay all membership fees, license fees and assessments then owed and the costs of the reinstatement proceeding. Upon receipt of a certified copy of the judgment, evidence of compliance and proof of payment of all membership fees, license fees and assessments then owed, the Commission shall direct the Chief Disciplinary Counsel to issue a declaration of the petitioner’s eligibility for licensure to the Clerk of the Supreme Court. Upon receipt of such declaration, the Clerk of the Supreme Court shall enter the name of the petitioner on the membership rolls of the Supreme Court and shall issue a new Bar card and law license in the name of the petitioner reflecting as the date of licensure the date of the declaration of eligibility. Once the petitioner has taken the attorney’s oath, the new Bar card and law license shall be delivered by the Clerk of the Supreme Court to the petitioner.
