Reinstatement is also contingent upon a showing of fitness. See In re Sibley, 990 A.2d 483 (D.C. 2010) (rebuttable presumption of identical reciprocal discipline applies to all cases in which the respondent does not participate); In re Maignan, 988 A.2d 493 (D.C. 2010)(the functional equivalent discipline to an indefinite suspension imposed by the state of Maryland with no set time within which to seek reinstatement is an indefinite suspension with a fitness requirement with the right to seek reinstatement in five years or after reinstatement by the state of Maryland).
