Hot Springs attorney John Skylar Tapp is in a legal battle to retain his law license.
This month, the Arkansas Surpreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct voted to suspend Tapp’s license pending a disbarment trial.
Tapp, through his attorney Jeff Rozensweig appealed directly to the Supreme Court alleging that they should not have suspended him prior to him being disbarred.
The Court lifted the suspension and gave him ten days to file a brief, which Tapp did last Monday.
The Executive Director of the Committee, Stark Ligon then has five days to respond to his brief.
So far, Ligon has not filed a response. If he does, then Tapp has five days to respond to that motion.
Special Judge John Lineberger has been assigned to the case.
