IN RE: JEFFREY L. KRAIN, Respondent
Bar Registration No. 326884. BDN: 50-14.
BEFORE: Beckwith, Associate Judge, and Nebeker and Terry, Senior Judges.
On consideration of the certified order suspending respondent from the practice of law in the state of New Jersey for a period of six months and until further order of the court, this court's May 20, 2014, order directing respondent to show cause why the functional equivalent reciprocal discipline in the form of a six-month suspension with a fitness requirement should not be imposed, the statement of Bar Counsel, and it appearing that respondent has failed to file either a response to this court's order to show cause or the affidavit required by D.C. Bar R. XI, § 14 (g), it is
ORDERED that Jeffrey L. Krain is hereby suspended for a period of six months with reinstatement conditioned on a showing of fitness. See In re Sibley, 990 A.2d 483 (D.C. 2010); In re Fuller, 930 A.2d 194, 198 (D.C. 2007) (rebuttable presumption of identical reciprocal discipline applies to all cases in which the respondent does not participate). It is
FURTHER ORDERED that for purposes of reinstatement the period of respondent's suspension will not begin to run until such time as he files an affidavit that fully complies with the requirements of D.C. Bar. R. XI, § 14 (g) and fully serves the four-year suspension previously imposed in In re Krain, 6 A.3d 1282 (D.C. 2010).
