Docket No.: BAR-11-2

Issued by: Supreme Judicial Court

Date: August 29, 2011

Respondent: James M. Cameron

Bar Number: 006893

Order: Suspension

Disposition/Conduct: Conviction of Crimes


By agreement of the parties, the August 30, 2011 hearing scheduled in the above pending matter is now ORDERED indefinitely continued, pending a decision from the First Circuit Court of Appeals regarding James M. Cameron's appeal of the March 10, 2011 convictions entered by the U.S. District Court, District of Maine, Case Number 1-09-CR-000024-001.

While the appeal is pending, Mr. Cameron's license to practice law shall remain administratively suspended, pursuant to an order issued by the Board of Overseers of the Bar on October 19, 2010. In addition, by agreement of the parties, Mr. Cameron's license to practice law is also suspended by this Court, pursuant to M. Bar R. 7.3(d)(1), because his federal convictions for multiple counts of child pornography crimes, which demonstrate his unfitness to practice, remain in place pending appeal.
