RICHARD MICHAEL JACOBSMEYER [#66300], 48, of Walnut Creek was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years of probation with a requirement that he make restitution, and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect July 4, 1998.Jacobsmeyer stipulated that he failed to obey a court order when he did not appear at a hearing as subpoenaed, and that he failed to cooperate with the State Bar's investigation.The misconduct stemmed from his failure to pay his accountant's bill. When the accountant sued him in small claims court, Jacobsmeyer failed to show up for trial and a default judgment was entered against him.He then failed to appear for examination and a bench warrant was issued against him.At the time of the stipulation, Jacobs-meyer had not paid the accountant the money he owed.Jacobsmeyer has been privately reproved twice and publicly reproved once.In mitigation, he received three documents advising him of the court appearance, but because of conflicting dates, he was confused about the actual date of the appearance.
