California Bar Seeks to Place Michael Avenatti on Inactive Status

The California Bar has filed a motion to place Michael Avenatti on inactive status. The Petition and Exhibits are over 500 pages long and list numerous claims that Avenatti converted funds belonging to his clients. Given the allegations against Avenatti and the two pending federal indictments against him, I would imagine that the petition will be granted. That will remove Avenatti from the practice of law during the disciplinary case.
