November 18, 2016

JAMES EDWARD GRISWOLD [#207294], 50, of Los Angeles, was disbarred Nov. 18, 2016 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.

Griswold was disbarred after his default was entered for failing to respond to a notice of disciplinary charges. He did not have the default set aside within 90 days as required under rule 5.85 of the State Bar’s Rules of Procedure so the State Bar moved to disbar him.

The charges were deemed admitted. Griswold improperly withdrew from employment, failed to comply with a court order requiring him to pay $1,000 in sanctions, cooperate by not providing a substantive response to three letters from a State Bar investigator or to update his membership address.
