Docket No.: BAR-11-7

Issued by: Supreme Judicial Court

Date: August 19, 2011

Respondent: Robert B. Pomeroy

Bar Number: 007269

Order: Disbarment Reciprocal Discipline

Disposition/Conduct: Reciprocal Discipline


May 20, 2011, the Board of Overseers of the Bar petitioned this Court for an Order of Disbarment in the reciprocal discipline matter filed by the Board. Attached to the Board's Petition for Reciprocal Discipline was a certified copy of the March 25, 2011 Commonwealth of Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's Order of Indefinite Suspension of Mr. Pomeroy.

The Court notes that Mr. Pomeroy was served with a copy of the Board's pleadings and this Court's June 24, 2011 Order & Notice. Thereafter, Mr. Pomeroy had thirty days in which to notify this Court of any claim by him that disbarment in Maine would be unwarranted. Mr. Pomeroy has defaulted by failing to file any response to this Court's Order.

Upon consideration of the Board of Overseers of the Bar's Petition for Reciprocal Discipline; and after providing Mr. Pomeroy an opportunity to respond, it is hereby ORDERED as follows:

  1. The Board of Overseers of the Bar's Petition for Reciprocal Discipline is hereby granted in all respects;

  2. Effective immediately and pursuant to M.BarR.7.3(h)(3), Robert B. Pomeroy is disbarred. That disbarment is the result of Pomeroy's violations of those portions of Maine's Code of Professional Responsibility that were then applicable and are analogous to his violations of Massachusetts' Rules of Professional Conduct as found in the March 25, 2011 Supreme Judicial Court's Order.

For the Court

Andrew M. Mead, Associate Justice Maine Supreme Judicial Court
