S.J.C. Order of Term Suspension entered by Justice Gants on May 27, 2009, with an effective date of June 26, 2009.1


On January 22, 2009, the respondent, Glenn Louis Rosenberg, was suspended for thirty days in Connecticut by the Superior Court for the Judicial District of Hartford, with his reinstatement conditioned upon $500,000 in malpractice insurance. The suspension resulted from the respondentís failure to pursue a personal injury case for a client, allowing the statute of limitations to pass and losing the clientís file. The respondent also did not keep the client informed of the status of the case and did not file a timely response to the clientís bar grievance.

The respondent did not report the Connecticut suspension to Massachusetts bar counsel, as required by S.J.C. Rule 4:01, ß 16(6).

On March 25, 2009, bar counsel filed a Petition For Reciprocal Discipline with the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County. The Court issued an Order Of Notice giving the respondent thirty days to show cause why reciprocal discipline should not be ordered in Massachusetts. The respondent did not reply to the order of notice. The Court, after notice, held a hearing on May 21, 2009, at which bar counsel appeared but the respondent did not. On May 27, 2009, the Court (Gants, J.) entered an order suspending the respondent for thirty days, effective thirty days after entry, with the respondentís eligibility for reinstatement in Massachusetts conditioned upon his reinstatement in Connecticut.
