On Thursday, March 30, 2023, the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division Third Judicial Department ruled on the petition for reinstatement filed by California attorney Robert William Korman.

The case is styled ‘In the Matter of Robert William Korman’, case #PM-79-23.

According to the Decision and Order on Motion, Korman was suspended from practice by a May 2019 order of the Court for violation of the Judiciary Law §468-a, which requires every attorney admitted to practice in the State of New York to register every two years with the Chief Administrator of the Courts.

Korman sought reinstatement by filing a notice of motion and affidavit with exhibits sworn on November 18, 2022.

The court stated that Korman provided clear and convincing evidence that he has complied with the order of suspension and the court rules, is fit to practice law, and that his reinstatement would be in the public interest, and thereby ruled in favor of Korman.

The order reads:

“ORDERED that respondent’s motion for reinstatement is granted; and it is further

ORDERED that respondent is reinstated as an attorney and counselor-at-law in the State of New York. effective immediately.”
