LUCIUS W. HOYT,

Treasurer.

The President:

You have heard the report, gentlemen, if there be no objection it will stand approved.

George L. Hodges:
I move that the report stand approved.
Motion seconded and carried.
The President:
Report of the Committee on Grievances.
Platt Rogers read the report of the Grievance Committee.
(For report see the appendix.)
Platt Rogers:

In addition to the matters which are stated in this written report, I ought to add some phases of the work of the committee.

Recently there has been a move made by several of those who have been disbarred to be reinstated in the Supreme Court, and the members of the committee have been approached by friends of the members making the application to know whether the committee would resist such application in given cases. The committee has discussed this particular matter at some length and has come to the conclusion that the cases have reached the stage in which the committee can no longer be called upon to take any action—that its work is accomplished by a disbarment or by whatever order may be obtained. The suggestion of the commit- . tee is that applications for reinstatement must be disposed of alone by the Supreme Court without any suggestion from the committee, except this general statement: That the committee has not prosecuted any case where it did not feel that the members proceeded against should be absolutely disbarred from further practice. The number of cases in which no action has been taken would indicate that we had exercised a very considerable discre

tion in respect to persons proceeded against. Where the most that seemed to be proper was a reprimand or something of that sort we have not taken any steps in court; the idea being that at this particular moment in the history of the Association we have enough to do if we confine ourselves to those cases which require radical and prompt treatment. In all cases, therefore, in which the Supreme Court has entered orders disbarring attorneys, it is the judgment of the members of this committee that those disbarments should not be tampered with in anyway; but we do not feel that we are called upon to discriminate between the different persons making application to be reinstated. This is given out as the general judgment of the committee on all the cases that they have disposed of.

This, I think, covers the work of the committee in the past and states its position with respect to the work that has been accomplished, and I think also gives the key to the tests adopted by the committee in authorizing prosecutions. There has been no disposition to take any hazards in applications for disbarments; the committee has gone at the matter with great care, and until it was thoroughly and completely satisfied of the justice of the proceeding has declined to apply to the Supreme Court.

Jacob Fillius:

Mr. Chairman, may I say a word in connection with that report. I suppose I may do so now. I have been approached, and probably other members of this Association, certainly other members of the bar in Denver, to sign applications for the reinstatement of attorneys who have been disbarred. I have one in mind especially. And it was a question in my mind whether we ought to do these things; whether by doing them we were not handicapping the work of the committee. And it was a question upon which I thought some rule should be laid down by the committee as to what the members of the Association ought to do under these circumstances. I do not know, as indicated by Judge Rogers' reports, that there is no pardon for those who have been disbarred. It may be somewhat of a harsh rule in particular instances, and yet I feel that probably members of the Associa
