On December 8, 2023, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued an order disbarring Attorney Nora F. Blair from practicing law in the state.
The case is entitled ‘Office of the Disciplinary Counsel v. Nora F. Blair’ with case no. 120 DB 2021.
The website of the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania states that Attorney Blair was previously suspended on September 16, 2021, citing Rule 208(f). The discipline stems from the same case where Attorney Blair was implicated in misconduct which she failed to answer.
The recent disbarment order cites the Pennsylvania Rule of Disciplinary Enforcement 208(f)(9), which allows for disbarment when an attorney does not contest accusations of misconduct through a rule to show cause.

The order noted that Attorney Blair failed to respond to a rule to show cause as to why she should not be disbarred.
The order instructed Attorney Blair to comply with rules on disbarred attorneys, including PA Rule of Disciplinary Enforcement 217, which covers notifications to courts that she is no longer authorized to practice and transfer client materials. She is also responsible for paying costs to the Disciplinary Board associated with the proceedings.
The disposition reads:
“AND NOW, this 8th day of December 2023, having failed to respond to a rule to show cause why she should not be disbarred, the Rule is made absolute, and RespondentNora F. Blair is disbarred from the Bar of this Commonwealth.”
According to Avvo, Attorney Nora F. Blair was a divorce and separation attorney based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She attended the Dickinson School of Law, graduating in 1985. She acquired her license in Pennsylvania the following year.
