On further consideration of the certified copy of the order issued by the Supreme Court of the State of New York disbarring respondent, see In re Hancock, 55 A.D.3d 216 (N.Y. App. Div. 2008), this court's November 10, 2008, order suspending respondent from the practice of law pending final disposition by this court, Bar Counsel's December 18, 2008, Statement Regarding Reciprocal Discipline recommending disbarrment as identical reciprocal discipline, and there appearing to be no exceptions or oppositions to the recommendation, and it further appearing that respondent has failed to file the affidavit required by D.C. Bar R. XI, §14(g), it is
ORDERED that Frank J. Hancock is hereby disbarred from the practice of law in the District of Columbia; however, for purposes of reinstatement, this disbarrment will not commence to run until such time as respondent files an affidavit that fully complies with the requirements of D.C.
