The Court determined that (1) when a licensed Nevada attorney pleads guilty to a felony, Supreme Court Rule (SCR) 111 requires an interim suspension of the attorney’s law license and a referral to the Nevada State Bar for formal discipline; and (2) the “good cause” exception to stay an interim suspension requires the court to consider whether the attorney’s crime poses a danger to his clients, the court, and the public.
