State Bar Will Reprimand Speaker Ralston

A reprimand for House Speaker David Ralston is expected today during the State Bar of Georgia’s annual meeting.

The Daily Report says:

The State Bar of Georgia’s Disciplinary Review Panel is slated to issue its reprimand of Georgia House of Representatives Speaker David Ralston on Friday as the bar meets for its annual convention at Jekyll Island through the weekend.

The panel’s action was ordered by the Georgia Supreme Court in December after it unanimously agreed that Ralston, a practicing attorney in Blue Ridge, had violated bar rules prohibiting a lawyer from loaning money to a client while a case was pending and of using money from his trust account to do so.

No details were immediately available and I am not a lawyer so I can’t say what it means or what will happen.
