Abstract

This Article explores the alternative applicability of Rule 2-611 or the contempt sanction to a reinstatement petition by a previously disciplined attorney. This Article concludes that because these proceedings are "original proceedings" before the Illinois Supreme Court, and because the Illinois Supreme Court has never promulgated any rules in this area, Rule 2-611 has no applicability here. The Article further concludes that precedent would not support the finding of a direct criminal contempt in this situation.
