January 6, 2017

RUTH ANN REID [#116119], 57, of Laguna Niguel, was disbarred Jan. 6, 2017 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.

Reid falsely reported she had complied with her MCLE requirements. She failed to file a response to a notice of disciplinary charges and her default was entered. Because she failed to have the default set aside or vacated within 90 days as required under the State Bar’s Rules of Procedure, the State Bar moved to disbar her. The charges were deemed admitted.
