Marilyn L. Graves

Clerk of Supreme Court

Madison, WI

 

In the Matter of the Amendment of Supreme Court Rules: SCR 21.01(2) - Board of Attorneys Professional Responsibility and SCR 30.01(1m)

-- Board of Bar Examiners

 

 

ORDER

No. 99-05

 

The court has determined that it is desirable to amend the Supreme Court Rules to specify the number of members of the Board of Attorneys Professional Responsibility and of the Board of Bar Examiners that constitute a quorum of each board, taking into account that at times, due to the expiration of terms, resignation or otherwise, not all of the members authorized by court rule are serving. To make provision for that eventuality, the court has deemed it appropriate to amend on its own motion SCR 21.01 (2), which currently specifies that a quorum of the Board of Attorneys Professional Responsibility consists of seven members, and to create SCR 30.01 (1m) to specify the number of the members of the Board of Bar Examiners that constitutes a quorum, as there is no current provision doing so.

IT IS ORDERED that, effective the date of this order, the Supreme Court Rules are amended as follows.

SECTION 1. 21.01 (2) is amended to read:

21.01 (2) A quorum of the board consists of 7 members a majority of members currently serving.

SECTION 2. 30.01 (1m) is created to read:

30.01 (1m) A quorum of the board consists of a majority of members currently serving.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that notice of these amendments of the Supreme Court Rules shall be given by a single publication of a copy of this order in the official state newspaper and in an official publication of the State Bar of Wisconsin.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin, this 29th day of June, 1999.
