BOTH OBAMAS SURRENDERED law licenses in '93 & '08
Liberty.com ^ | 05/09/2012 | Liberty.com

Posted on 05/09/2012 11:01:49 AM PDT by Mich1193

This can be easily veriified at https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell.

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A "Voluntary Surrender" is not something where you decide "Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?" and forget to renew your license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender" your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2 Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or STAND TRIAL FOR insurance FRAUD.

Why is the SOB still in office? Is the media completely controlled by corporations that are hell bent on their own destruction as well as this nations? It is inconceivable that Obama has not been impeached or thrown out of office by now. When will the real truth be finally brought to light? At least Obama care is going down in flames and Joe Biden is making his administration look as incompetent as he sounds with a face to put it on. Obama has placed the whole nation and world into idiot mode and it attracting all the zombies and idiots unto himself.

Disagree with me all you want but I sense the ground is shifting under our feet and the country as a whole is coming round to the idea regarding 0bozo of - “enough”.

I don’t for a moment claim that most of the lies will be exposed by the MSM. But I sense that the country has tired of the act and is ready to move on.

Maybe I’m wrong - I hope I’m not.

I think you’re on to something.

Here in Indiana, the Lugar flush vote was 61 / 39 FAR more lopsided than I expected.

The Obama flush vote may well be pretty bit too.

The information appears to have been 'scrubbed'. Here's an article from 2009 when the ARDC page showed the 'court order' portion in the search result.

Attorneys may go inactive and pay a small annual fee and no continuing legal education required. No attorneys elect voluntary surrender over inactive. When one voluntarily surrenders that negates the Bar and would require them to take/pass it again to practice. Nobody chooses that after going to law school and passing the bar.

Attorneys who F up big time ALWAYS take the voluntary surrender option to forestall investigation and disbarment. Moochelle was admitted in 89 & was done in 93. She probably spent 93 being investigated & firewalled. I would guess she “practiced” for a grand total of 3 years.

Could you imagine if Sarah Palin's husband had a similar situation?

Holy crap the MSM would devote dozens of investigators to get the details.

I cannot give you chapter an verse on this, but I believe that it is common for lawyers going into public office to put their law licenses on dormant or inactive status.

1. President Obama’s serving as an editor of the Harvard Law Review is amply documented in publications — including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe — from the early 1990s, including when Obama was still a student. Nor would it have been an easy hoax to pull off then, since the board contained many dozens of people, including many conservatives, all of whom could have blown the whistle had the allegation been false.

If the allegation had been false? Really?...why doesn't the author of this article site the Obama publications...

The article on WND explains rule 770 and when and why it was changed, that ARDC web site decided to change to the new standard template is not the stuff of conspiracy more of just standardization

http://web.archive.org/web/20080102005754/http://www.iardc.org/rule770inactivestatus.html

to see the wayback machines image of the change rule.

Rule 759 Restoration to active status. explains this.

Aditionaly no one voted for M.Obama her status as a lawyer is of little import.

That B.Obama makes “puffed” up claims as to his “professorship” is a moral turpitude issue and a matter often of semantics. That he is a poor president and one that has little use for the Constitution as written is of course a matter for the voters hopefully they will decide that being a good reader and stentorian speaker is not all that is needed.

I followed he links in there article and none of them provides any documentation for this charge. This is something I've been looking for documentation on for a long time, indeed, ever since I read about it here on FR. It definitely looks possible because the quotes from the Illinois Attorney Registration and Discipline Commission website make it look like she was forced out of the bar on a "resign or be fired" basis. Does anybody have any real documentation for this charge?? If so, please post it. Thanks.

Well here is what NYT wrote

First Black Elected to Head Harvard’s Law Review
By FOX BUTTERFIELD, Special to The New York Times

Single-Page

The Harvard Law Review, generally considered the most prestigious in the country, elected the first black president in its 104-year history today. The job is considered the highest student position at Harvard Law School.

* Note it does not claim he was an editor or the editor just that he was elected to be president of the law review.

That the article claims NYT printed he was editor is true that NYT ever did of course r would need to be proved.

Facts matter

There could be many reasons come to mind, firstly to keep the lic to practice at court she would be required to keep taking education classes (rule 759) and pay fees among other requirements.

Rule 759 also explains how to reinstate to active status.

I was licensed for a Mo-ped as a teen but have since not renewed that lic. because I no longer have a need for it. If she was not going to practice law (note that only means in a court room from what I can glean from Il. Rules) why would she maintain the lic ?

I have no problem believing that Michelle Obama may have lost her license due to indiscretions but unless I have factual evidence that she did, I'm treating the source just like I did Dan Rather and his bogus claim of President Bush being AWOL from his ANG service.

I went to your posted Liberty.com website and found that the rhetoric he posted was taken directly from another blog (which he linked to and which also offered the disclaimer of "rumors").

And when I did a google search on "Michelle Lavaughn Robinson" I found literally tons of other blogsites echoing the very same thing but none of them providing the actual facts surrounding the loss of her license...........or Obama's for that matter.

So while it's nice to believe the worst from the first couple, I'm not offering any of this up for argument in a room full of liberals until I have ALL THE FACTS...........

Michelle Obama’s original page on this iardc website has been scrubbed. The original one found in 2008 reported court ordered suspension. I placed the link here awhile ago.

Devvy reported it I believe. Let me see if I can find the old link.

And the article stated that the Court Rules changed in 1999 and that the “order” did not mean that there was a sanction against the lawyer.

MICHELLE OBAMA ON “COURT ORDERED INACTIVE STATUS”

First off, the biggest ass-kissing media refers to Michelle Obama as a ‘distinguished attorney” despite the fact that Michelle Obama has been”inactive” since 1993. Click here: ARDC | Lawyer Search

ARDC - Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois

Click to enlarge image. Everyday another Obama skeleton comes careening out of the closet.

This ADRC is for discipline reasons...not for those volunteering to stop practicing. It is COURT ORDERED...not “Michelle Obama ordered.” Their website is very clear about their function and why they step in. (see below)

If this was a Republican, the Democrooks would have her up on charges already.

Schmoo, an attorney, points out, “sounds more to me like she was drummed right out of the practice of law. I am just dying to know what she did... she ran to have a court ordered inactive status done...and then no malpractice report needed to be provided.

She wanted this to ‘go away” fast and furious and the details not come out in depositions, courtroom documents, rulings for the client/plaintiffs...etc..

I would love to know what she did. I believe barack obummer himself was also disciplined—I know his law license is on “inactive” he lied about ever going by any other names when he applied for bar application. He also failed to state any prior drug use...(which he admitted in his books...and he had outstanding tickets that were never paid).”

Michelle Obama on court ordered inactive status with the Illinois State Attorney hat tip schmoopett

huh?

Michelle Obama is on COURT ORDERED INACTIVE STATUS—order said since she has been placed INACTIVE that “no malpractice record required.”

WHAT DID SHE DO THAT in 1993 — AFTER only 4 YEARS — HER LICENSE to PRACTICE LAW WAS REVIEWED AND PUT ON INACTIVE by a DISCIPLINARY AGENCY?

What Is the ARDC? (this is NOT the Illinois Bar-where one can voluntarily be inactive) As our name implies, the ARDC is the agency of the Supreme Court of Illinois which registers attorneys and investigates complaints of misconduct filed against attorneys holding a license to practice law in Illinois.

Mitch your enthusiasm is wonderful but please go read the rules of Il. Court they are easy to find by google. Those of us that have done so know that the dark spin you attribute to the data is no more accurate than the MSM claiming she was a great lawyer or that B.Obama was a great professor.

Don't you think that giving it up after 3 years is a little strange?

Remember, she only got the license after having spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and a commitment of at least four years.

Did your moped license cost you that much money and effort?

ARDC is not just a disciplinary organization but also an administrative one

“As an administrative agency of the Supreme Court of Illinois, the ARDC assists the Court in regulating the legal profession through attorney registration, education, investigation, prosecution and remedial action.”
