DC Bar moves to suspend Hunter Biden’s law license after felony conviction

Hunter Biden is expected to lose his license to practice law in Washington, DC, this week after his disciplinary counsel filed a motion to suspend him following his felony conviction.

The Office of Disciplinary Counsel is responsible for disciplining members of the Washington, D.C., bar, and it sent a letter to the D.C. Court of Appeals asking that the eldest son be “immediately suspended from practicing law in the District of Columbia until this matter is resolved.”

The D.C. Bar classifies any felony as a “serious crime,” and Bar policy requires that courts immediately suspend the law license of anyone convicted of such a crime, regardless of the status of their appeal.

According to NBC News, the court has the discretion to waive the suspension “if it believes the interests of justice require it.”

“The Third Circuit [appeals court]However, the Court did not then, and has not now, entered an order dismissing either appeal,” Lowell wrote in the filing. “Accordingly, the Court lacked the authority to do so when it selected the jury and commenced the trial on June 3, 2024.”

However, Reuters reported that the allegations were quickly removed from a court documents website.
