John Eastman, a lawyer closely associated with former President Donald Trump, has faced a temporary suspension from practicing law in the District of Columbia, mirroring a similar prohibition imposed by a California judge.

Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby of the DC Court of Appeals announced the temporary suspension on Friday, pending the final resolution of the disciplinary proceedings in California.

The decision in DC follows a ruling by California State Bar Court Judge Yvette Roland on May 1, where she denied Eastman’s request to lift his suspension in the state.

Roland emphasized that Eastman’s disbarment was necessary to protect the public, particularly in light of his dissemination of false claims regarding the 2020 election. The ultimate determination regarding Eastman’s status will be made by the California Supreme Court.

Eastman is among several former lawyers for Trump who are facing disciplinary actions. Rudolph Giuliani and Kenneth Chesebro have already had their licenses suspended, while Jeffrey Clark is confronting potential disbarment following preliminary findings by a DC Bar committee indicating violations of ethics rules related to dishonesty regarding alleged election fraud.

In California, Roland’s decision in March concluded that Eastman should be disbarred for his deliberate propagation of false assertions asserting Trump’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Eastman’s legal representatives at Miller Law Associates APC were not immediately available for comment regarding the recent developments.
