Attorney at Law, Suspension, Reinstatement.

The petitioner, Richard S. Weiss, appeals from the judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition for reinstatement to the bar.  We affirm.

After Weiss “stipulated to facts warranting the conclusion that he violated the applicable disciplinary rules,” see Matter of Weiss, 460 Mass. 1012, 1013 (2011), he was suspended from the practice of law for one year and one day, effective May 20, 2011His first petition for reinstatement was denied by a single justice of this court in 2013, and he was given leave to reapply for reinstatement on or after January 1, 2014.  See S.J.C. Rule 4:01, § 18 (8), as appearing in 453 Mass. 1315 (2009).  He filed a second petition for reinstatement on June 25, 2013.  The single justice denied the petition without prejudice to filing a new petition on or after January 1, 2014.  The petition he filed thereafter, his third, is the subject of this appeal. read more
