§48-15-304. Procedure where license to practice law may be
subject to denial, suspension or restriction.
If a person who has been admitted to the practice of law in
this state by order of the supreme court of appeals is determined
to be in default under a support order or has failed to comply with
a subpoena or warrant in a paternity or child support proceeding,
such that his or her other licenses are subject to suspension or
restriction under this article, the bureau for child support
enforcement may send a notice listing the name and social security
number or other identification number to the lawyer disciplinary
board established by the supreme court of appeals. The Legislature
hereby requests the supreme court of appeals to promptly adopt
rules pursuant to its constitutional authority to govern the
practice of law that would include as attorney misconduct for which
an attorney may be disciplined, situations in which a person
licensed to practice law in West Virginia has been determined to be
in default under a support order or has failed to comply with a
subpoena or warrant in a paternity or child support proceeding.
