In re Stone

District of Columbia Court of Appeals


April 05, 2001

IN RE MICHAEL H. STONE, RESPONDENT.
A MEMBER OF THE BAR OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA COURT OF APPEALS

Before Schwelb, Ruiz, and Reid, Associate Judges.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam

On Report and Recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility

Submitted December 18, 2000

On June 23, 1999, following the institution of disciplinary proceedings by Bar Counsel, Michael H. Stone, a member of our Bar, signed a stipulation in which he admitted various acts of ethical misconduct involving six clients over a two-year period. Acting on a recommendation by a Hearing Committee, the Board on Professional Responsibility (the "Board") accepted the stipulation. The Board has now recommended that Stone be suspended from practice for four months, with two months of the suspension stayed, and that the suspension be followed by a one-year period of unsupervised probation. *fn1

Neither Bar Counsel nor Stone has filed an exception to the Board's recommendation, and neither objects to the recommended sanction. Accordingly, with the single exception specified in footnote 1, we impose the sanction recommended by the Board. See D.C. Bar R. XI, § 9 (g)(2); In re Goldsborough, 654 A.2d 1285, 1288 (D.C. 1995). Michael H. Stone is therefore suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia for four months, with two months stayed, followed by a one-year period of unsupervised probation. We direct Stone's attention to the requirements of D.C. Bar R. XI, § 14, and to the consequences of noncompliance set forth in D.C. Bar R. XI, § 16 (c).

So ordered.
