11/22/93 PETER LARSEN RESPONDENT A MEMBER BAR

November 22, 1993

IN RE: PETER LARSEN, RESPONDENT, A MEMBER OF THE BAR OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA COURT OF APPEALS


On Report and Recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility

Before Ferren and Wagner, Associate Judges, and Pryor, Senior Judge.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Pryor

PRYOR, Senior Judge: On April 12, 1991, we disbarred respondent from the practice of law but stayed the disbarrment and placed respondent on probation for three years. In re Larsen, 589 A.2d 400 (D.C. 1991). See In re Kersey, 520 A.2d 321, 326-28 (D.C. 1987). Subsequently, the Board of Professional Responsibility (Board) conditioned probation on (1) respondent submitting to psychiatric counseling for three years; and (2) respondent fully cooperating with appointed counsel who would monitor respondent's law practice.

On November 21, 1991, Bar Counsel filed a petition to revoke respondent's probation for failure to fulfill the enumerated conditions. Respondent filed no opposition and did not appear at the subsequent hearing which concluded that he "had violated the conditions of his probation." The Board recommends that Mr. Larsen's suspension from disbarrment be vacated and that he be disbarred from practicing law in the District of Columbia.

We are required to "accept the findings of fact made by the Board unless they are unsupported by substantial evidence of record, and shall adopt the recommended Disposition of the Board unless to do so would foster a tendency toward inconsistent Dispositions for comparable conduct or would otherwise be unwarranted." D.C. Bar Rule XI, § 9 (g). In re Morris, 495 A.2d 1162 (D.C. 1985). We accept the Board's factual findings and adopt their recommended discipline. A copy of the Board's Report and Recommendation is attached hereto.

Peter Larsen is hereby disbarred from practicing law in the District of Columbia.

So ordered.
