CHARLESTON – The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has issued an order annulling the law license of an attorney.
The order was filed on Sept. 5 in the W.Va. Supreme Court of Appeals regarding Mark A. Thomas.
On July 24, the Hearing Panel Subcommittee of the Lawyer Disciplinary board presented the court with its order to accept respondent’s consent to disbarment affidavit, along with a formal affidavit, under seal, of the respondent consenting to voluntary disbarment.
The court accepted Thomas’ consent to disbarment, according to the Supreme Court’s order.
“It is finally ordered that the statement of charges in this matter shall be … dismissed in light of the respondent’s consent to disbarment,” the order states.
The order does not mention the reason Thomas agreed to voluntary disbarment.
In 2015, Thomas received a temporary suspension in Ohio. He also previously received a suspension of his law license in West Virginia in 2016.
