See In re Dobbyn, 943 A.2d 1165, 1166 (D.C. 2008) (court imposed reciprocal discipline of disbarrment for misappropriation of funds where respondent failed to participate and sanction imposed by default); In re Blum, 859 A.2d 633 (D.C. 2004) (disbarrment for failing to return funds to a former client in a timely fashion and falsifying evidence to cover up that fact); In re Pierson, 690 A.2d 941 (D.C. 1997) (attorney disbarred for using client escrow account to pay her business expenses.); and In re Larsen, 589 A.2d 400 (D.C. 1991) ("In this jurisdiction misappropriation of funds warrants disbarrment in virtually all cases."). It is
FURTHER ORDERED as the 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 R. XI, § 16 (c).
