Docket No.: BAR-15-5
Issued by: Maine Supreme Judicial Court
Date: September 21, 2015
Respondent: Julie C. Molloy
Bar Number: 008681
Disposition/Conduct: Reciprocal Suspension
M. Bar R. 26
On February 24, 2015 the Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued an Order of Term Suspension suspending Julie C. Molloy for her violations of the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct. The Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar promptly initiated a reciprocal discipline action and, as part of that action, we issued a May 15, 2015 Order and Notice that provided Ms. Molloy an opportunity to respond and show cause why we should not impose discipline identical to that imposed upon her in Massachusetts. See M. Bar R. 26(c)(2).
Because Ms. Molloy has failed to file a response to that order; the Board's petition is granted, by default. Therefore, it is ORDERED:
- The Board of Overseers of the Bar's Petition for Reciprocal Discipline is hereby granted in all respects;
- Effective immediately and pursuant to M. Bar R. 26(e), Julie C. Molloy is suspended from the practice of law in Maine. That suspension is based on Ms. Molloy's violations of those portions of Maine's Rules of Professional Conduct that are analogous to the Rules of Professional Conduct that the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts found she had violated in its Order of Term Suspension.
- Ms. Molloy's suspension shall remain in effect until the Court reinstates her to the Maine Bar.
- Within thirty days after the entry of this order, Ms. Molloy shall file with the Clerk of the Law Court and with Bar Counsel an affidavit attesting to her compliance with the provisions of Maine Bar Rule 31. Within ten days after the entry of this order, Ms. Molloy shall comply with the affidavit requirement listed in M. Bar R. 31(h).
For the Court,
