ELIZABETH ELLIOT [#159534], 36, of Clovis was suspended for one year, stayed, and placed on one year of probation with a 30-day actual suspension and until she makes restitution. If the suspension exceeds two years, she must prove rehabilitation to the State Bar Court. She also was ordered to take the MPRE and to comply with rule 955. The order took effect Nov. 27, 1996.When Elliot failed to return eight overdue books to the Fresno County Law Library, the library went to small claims court to recover the late charges and the value of the books -- $840.36.The State Bar Court found that by taking and keeping the books, Elliot acted in her capacity as an attorney. In California, it is a misdemeanor to keep library books more than 30 days past the borrowing date.In two other cases, Elliot failed to perform legal services and communicate with a client.Although the court noted the relatively minor nature of her actions, it ordered Elliot suspended because the misconduct began barely a year after she was admitted to the bar and because she did not participate in the proceedings.
