In re Standard

District of Columbia Court of Appeals


December 27, 2001

IN RE ROBERT M. STANDARD, RESPONDENT. A MEMBER OF THE BAR OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA COURT OF APPEALS

Before Steadman and Glickman, Associate Judges, and Belson, Senior Judge.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam.

On Report and Recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility

(Bar Docket No. 135-00)

Submitted December 10, 2001

The Board on Professional Responsibility recommends that respondent Robert M. Standard be disbarred pursuant to D.C. Code § 11-2503 (a) (2001), because he was convicted in the United States District Court for the Central District of California of bankruptcy fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 152. Neither Bar Counsel nor respondent has taken exception to the Board's report. Since bankruptcy fraud is a crime that inherently involves moral turpitude, disbarrment is mandatory and we accept the Board's recommendation. See In re Sugarman, 677 A.2d 1049, 1050 (D.C. 1996) (per curiam). Accordingly, it is hereby

ORDERED that Robert M. Standard is disbarred from the practice of law in the District of Columbia. As respondent has not filed the affidavit required by D.C. Bar R. XI, § 14 (g), we direct his attention to the requirements of that rule and their effect on his eligibility for reinstatement. See D.C. Bar XI, § 16 (c).

So ordered.
