The order took effect June 30, 2013.Bull stipulated to misconduct in another jurisdiction, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington. According to the stipulation, Bull represented a plumbers union in a class action, appearing pro hac vice because she is not admitted to practice law in Washington.On July 25, 2012, the district court issued an order of reproval against Bull after she made inaccurate statements as to expenses and disbursements of her firm, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd “with, at a minimum, reckless disregard for the truth.”In mitigation, Bull demonstrated evidence of her good character, had no prior discipline in more than 23 years of practice, acknowledged her wrongdoing and cooperated with the State Bar.
