12/30/91 MATTER GRANT P. JONES RESPONDENT. A MEMBER

December 30, 1991

IN THE MATTER OF GRANT P. JONES, RESPONDENT. A MEMBER OF THE BAR OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA COURT OF APPEALS


Before Ferren and Farrell, Associate Judges, and Kern, Senior Judge.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam

On Report and Recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility

PER CURIAM:

This disciplinary matter is before the court on the recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility ("the Board") that respondent, a member of the bar of the District of Columbia, be suspended from the practice of law in this jurisdiction for a period of one year, with a requirement that respondent make a showing of fitness to practice law if and when he seeks reinstatement. Respondent is under a four-year suspension from practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia, based on findings of fact made after an evidentiary hearing by the authorities of the Virginia State Bar. We adopt the Board's recommendation explaining why a one-year, rather than four-year, suspension shall be imposed, and we incorporate by reference the Board's report, which we attach hereto as an appendix.

It is therefore

ORDERED that respondent, Grant Paul Jones, shall be suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia for one year, effective thirty days from the date of this order. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that if respondent seeks reinstatement in the Bar after his one-year suspension has expired, he shall file with the Board on Professional Responsibility a petition for reinstatement, and shall furnish to the Board proof of his fitness to resume the practice of law. See D.C. Bar R. XI, §§ 3(a)(2) and 16(d).
