The Kansas Supreme Court released the following published decisiontoday:

Appeal No. 118,310: In the Matter of Curtis N. Holmes, Respondent

The Supreme Court suspended Holmes, of De Soto, from the practice of law for one year. Holmes neglected to pay a late registration fee, which resulted in the suspension of his license. While suspended, Holmes did not withdraw from representation of his clients; did not notify every court, client, and opposing counsel of his suspension; and continued to practice law. Holmes later admitted making misleading statements during the attorney disciplinary process. Although Holmes asked the court to place him on probation, he did not file his proposed plan of probation nor an affidavit that he was complying with its terms. The court found there were no mitigating circumstances and agreed with the Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys that Holmes be suspended from the practice of law for one year from the date of filing of the decision. A minority of the court would have imposed a lesser sanction.
