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. http://www.calbar.ca.gov/About-Us/News-Events/News-Releases/state-bar-of-california-files-to-place-attorney-michael-j-avenatti-on-involuntary-inactive-status 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.
