KRIS PATRICK THOMPSON [#154866], 55, of San Diego was disbarred April 25, 2013, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.Thompson’s default was entered in 2012 after he failed to appear at trial. Because he made no effort to vacate the default within 90 days, as required by rule 5.85 of the bar’s rules of procedure, he was disbarred and the charges against him were deemed admitted.Thompson was charged with violating two conditions of the disciplinary probation imposed on him in 2007, failing to comply with rule 9.20 and violating two of the conditions of the disciplinary probation imposed on him in 2010.In 2007, he received a public reproval following a conviction for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol with a prior conviction for the same offense. His 2010 disciplinary probation was for not abiding by the terms of the earlier public reproval.

KRIS PATRICK THOMPSON [#154866], 53, of San Diego was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an actual 90-day suspension and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Dec. 9, 2010.Thompson appealed a State Bar Court hearing judge’s recommendation that he be suspended for six months after he failed to comply with conditions attached to a 2007 public reproval. He had been convicted of misdemeanor driving under the influence in 2005. The bar court review department agreed that Thompson should receive a stayed suspension and probation but reduced the actual suspension to 90 days.Despite the requirements of the reproval order, Thompson did not undergo a substance abuse or mental health evaluation, contact the bar’s probation office or submit quarterly reports. Although the review department said it did not condone Thompson’s “continual failure to comply with his reproval conditions because his trial schedule did not afford him the time to attend to them,” it also found that the DUI did not involve the practice of law or relate to any clients. Thompson accepted full responsibility for not complying with the reproval and has no other discipline record.
