No. BD-1995-008

IN RE: RONALD E. TUCKER

S.J.C. Order (Disbarment) entered by Justice Abrams on September 20, 2000.

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION

The respondent, Ronald E. Tucker, pleaded guilty on September 16, 1994, to attempted bribery, a misdemeanor. The respondent had, for a number of years, fixed parking tickets so they would not have to be paid. The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has affirmed the disbarment of the respondent and Ordered the respondent disbarred.

On the record before me, there is no reason not to accord deference to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The respondent's claim of family and other hardships does not warrant a less severe sanction.

On review of the papers, I conclude that disbarment is appropriate.

By the Court,

RUTH I. ABRAMS

DATED: 20 September 2000
