Rules Adopted by the Supreme Court


Rule 209
Rules Relating to Discipline of Attorneys


All complaints or reports relating to misconduct of any attorney shall be filed with the Disciplinary Administrator. Any complaints or reports filed with the Disciplinary Board or any member thereof, the Clerk of the Appellate Courts, any state or local bar association, or any other body shall be immediately delivered to the Disciplinary Administrator. The Disciplinary Administrator shall promptly docket all complaints or reports received unless the complaint or report is determined to be frivolous or without merit, in which case the Disciplinary Administrator may dismiss the complaint or report without having docketed the same. The Disciplinary Administrator may for just cause and after consultation with the Chairman of the Board or the liaison Justice of the Supreme Court dismiss any disciplinary action at any stage of the proceeding prior to docketing in the Supreme Court pursuant to Rule 212.
