In the Matter of Gary H. Reiner

On March 11, 2010, the Attorney Discipline Office (ADO) filed a certified copy of the judgment of the United States District Court for the District of Maine. The judgment states that Attorney Gary H. Reiner was convicted of four criminal offenses; to wit, conspiracy to violate the Mann and Travel Acts; Interstate Travel to Facilitate an Unlawful Activiity; Inducing Travel to Engage in Prostitution; and Conspiracy to Launder Money. A certified copy of a mandate of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit reflects that Attorney Reinerís convictions were affirmed on appeal.

In accordance with Rule 37(9)(d), the court issued an order requiring Attorney Reiner to show cause why he should not be disbarred as a result of the convictions. Attorney Reiner filed a response in which he asked to be permitted to resign from the bar. Attorney Reiner then submitted an affidavit of resignation to the Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) in accordance with Rule 42(11). The PCC reviewed Attorney Reinerís request to resign and recommended that it be denied due to the gravity of his conduct. The PCCís recommendation is accepted. Attorney Reinerís request to resign from the bar is denied.

After reviewing Attorney Reinerís response to the courtís order, the court finds and rules that Attorney Reiner has failed to show cause why he should not be disbarred.

THEREFORE, in accordance with Rule 37(9)(d), the court orders that Gary H. Reiner be disbarred from the practice of law in New Hampshire. Attorney Reiner is hereby assessed all expenses incurred by the Professional Conduct Committee in the investigation and prosecution of this matter.

Broderick, C.J., and Dalianis, Duggan, Hicks and Conboy, JJ., concurred.
