Ex-Trump Attorney’s Law License Temporarily Suspended by D.C. Appeals Court

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals has temporarily suspended the law license of John Eastman, a former attorney for ex-President Trump, pending the outcome of disciplinary proceedings in California.

This move follows a similar order issued by a California State Bar Court in late March. According to an order filed on Friday by Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby, Eastman’s license will remain suspended in D.C. until a final disposition is reached in the California court case.

In late March, a California judge recommended disbarment for Eastman due to his “false and misleading statements” regarding claims of 2020 election fraud and his role in “provoking” the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. State Bar Judge Yvette Roland also recommended a $10,000 fine in monetary sanctions.

This week, Judge Roland denied Eastman’s request to lift the suspension of his license, stating that he failed to demonstrate he is not a “threat to the public.”

The California Supreme Court will review the case, and Eastman, the former dean of Chapman Law School, has the option to appeal. Judge Roland found Eastman guilty of 10 counts filed in California last year.

In addition to the disciplinary proceedings, Eastman faces criminal charges in two key 2024 election battleground states. In Georgia, he and other allies of the former president are accused of attempting to overturn the state’s 2020 election results, and he has pleaded not guilty.

In Arizona, Eastman and other Trump allies face charges related to their efforts to subvert the 2020 election results in the state.

The suspension of Eastman’s law license in D.C. and the pending criminal charges in Georgia and Arizona cast a shadow over his legal career and raise questions about his involvement in attempts to undermine the democratic process.

The outcome of these cases will likely have serious implications for Eastman’s future as a legal professional and may serve as a warning to others who would seek to undermine the integrity of the electoral process.
