February 17, 2007

ROBERT EDWARD NOEL [#68477], 66, of Fairfield was disbarred Feb. 17, 2007, and was ordered to comply with rule 955.

In a default proceeding, the State Bar Court found that Noel failed to comply with rule 955, as required by a 2002 interim suspension. He did not file with the Supreme Court an affidavit stating that he notified his clients, opposing counsel and other interested parties of his suspension.

Noel was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and owning a mischievous animal causing death in a notorious dog mauling case in San Francisco. Noel and his wife, Marjorie Knoller, kept two huge Presa Canarios for a prison inmate who was their client and adopted son. The dogs attacked and killed a neighbor of the couple.
