An attorney disbarred and a request to resign denied

In In re: Wick, D-10-0015, an attorney is ordered disbarred and his request to allow resignation from the bar is denied, in disciplinary proceeding of the attorney for fraudulently overcharging is clients, as the attorney has no reason, financial or otherwise, for wanting to resign from the bar of this court other than to avoid the sanction of another disbarment.

As the court wrote: "Why a lawyer would bother to request permission to resign a membership that imposes no financial or other obligations (such as commitment to an organization's principles) is unclear, and this leads us to speculate that the most common reason is a desire to avoid expulsion - a desire that should not be honored."
