Supreme Court Orders
In the Matter of
Janet Gilligan, Esquire
In 1989, Attorney Janet Gilligan was suspended from the practice of law in New Hampshire for failing to file her trust accounting certificate. Attorney Gilligan recently certified to the court that, during the period that she practiced law in New Hampshire, she was employed by the New Hampshire Public Defender; she did not have in her possession or control any client funds or property; and she did not have a trust account. Attorney Gilligan requests that she be reinstated to the practice of law in New Hampshire so that she can resign from the bar. Attorney Gilliganís request for reinstatement to allow her to resign from the bar is granted. The court waives any fines imposed for noncompliance with the trust accounting requirement and the requirements of Rule 50-A regarding reinstatement of an attorney who has been suspended for more than one year.
Dalianis, C.J., and Hicks, Conboy, Lynn, and Bassett, JJ., concurred.
