February 28, 2004

REBECCA DONALDSON [#135023], 58, of Beaumont was disbarred Feb. 28, 2004, and ordered to comply with rule 955.

Donaldson did not participate in the disbarment proceedings but was found to have violated an earlier rule 955 requirement by not submitting the necessary affidavit to the Supreme Court.

Her troubles began with a 1999 private reproval for improperly withdrawing from a criminal appeal and her failure to obey a federal court order requiring her to file an opening brief. In 2001, she was publicly reproved for not complying with conditions attached to the 1999 order — she did not submit quarterly probation reports or take the PRE.

The 2002 discipline was imposed for her failure to comply with probation conditions from the 2001 order.

November 16, 2002

REBECCA DONALDSON [#135023], 57, of Beaumont was suspended for one year, stayed, actually suspended for 90 days and until the State Bar Court grants a motion to terminate the suspension, and was ordered to comply with rule 955. If the actual suspension exceeds two years, she must prove her rehabilitation. The order took effect Nov. 16, 2002.

In a default matter, the bar court found that Donaldson failed to comply with conditions of a 2001 public reproval. She did not submit five quarterly probation reports.

The reproval was imposed because Donaldson failed to take the professional responsibility exam, as required by a private reproval imposed in 1999 as a result of her withdrawal from a case without the court's permission.
