Late last fall, LDAD and States United Democracy Center wrote a letter to the Colorado Supreme Court urging the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel (OARC) to seek Jenna Ellis’s disbarment through a new disciplinary proceeding, in light of her felony guilty plea in the Fulton County, Georgia election interference case.

The letter was signed by more than a dozen bipartisan signatories, including former Republican officials, leading law professors, and the Bush and Obama White House ethics advisors.

Today, Jenna Ellis has had her license suspended for three years. As the Presiding Disciplinary Judge wrote: "If Ellis seeks to reinstate her Colorado law license following her suspension, she must prove by clear and convincing evidence that she has been rehabilitated, has complied with all disciplinary orders and rules, and is fit to practice law."

Practicing law is a privilege that requires adherence to an oath and a code of conduct. LDAD will continue to seek accountability for those lawyers who disregard both and, in the process, undermine the rule of law.
