Court Denied Readmission to the Bar Due to Failure to Show Repentance and Sufficient Rehabilitation
In Florida Board of Bar Examiners re J.C.B., 655 So. 2d 79 (Fla. 1995) the court stated that the respondent had not shown sufficient rehabilitation and that "the requirement of positive action is appropriate for applicants for admission to the bar because service to one's community is an implied obligation of members of the bar." Id. at 82 (quoting Florida Bar Admission Rules, art. III, 4.e.(7)).
However, in J.C.B., our denial of readmission also was based upon J.C.B.'s failure to show repentance and failure to pay longstanding debts.
