BEFORE: Blackburne-Rigsby and Thompson, Associate Judges, and Farrell, Senior Judge.
On consideration of the certified order of the Maryland Court of Appeals indefinitely suspending respondent by consent from the practice of law in that jurisdiction, see Atty. Grievance Comm'n v. Robinson, Misc. Docket AG No. 75, (Md. June 9, 2009), this court's July 21, 2009, order suspending respondent from the practice of law in this jurisdiction pending further action of the court and directing him to show cause why identical reciprocal discipline should not be imposed, the response thereto, and the statement of Bar Counsel regarding reciprocal discipline, and respondent having submitted the affidavit required by D.C. Bar R. XI, §14 (g), it is
ORDERED that Lawrence T. Robinson is hereby indefinitely suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia with the right to apply for reinstatement after being reinstated in Maryland or after five years, whichever comes first.
