On Wednesday, January 3, 2024, attorney Ernest J. Walker was reinstated to practice law in Michigan after completing a 30-day suspension ordered by the state Attorney Discipline Board late last year.

The case is entitled “Grievance Administrator, Attorney Grievance Commission v. Ernest J. Walker,” with case no. 23-64-GA.

Walker, who has been licensed to practice law in Michigan since 1998, was suspended effective December 2, 2023, through January 2, 2024, for filing a frivolous lawsuit in federal court in Colorado. According to records from the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board case 23-64-GA, Walker admitted to violating Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct 3.1 and Michigan Court Rules 9.104(2) by bringing a proceeding deemed to be without merit against Dominion Voting Systems, Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg and others related to the 2020 election.

After serving his suspension, Walker filed an affidavit on January 2, 2024, asserting he had fully complied with the terms of the suspension order. With no objection from the Attorney Grievance Commission, the Attorney Discipline Board reinstated Walker’s license to practice law in Michigan.

The Disposition states:

“IT IS ORDERED that respondent, Ernest J. Walker, is reinstated to the practice of law in Michigan, effective January 3, 2024.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Walker is an attorney in Saint Joseph, Michigan. He acquired his law license in Michigan in 1998.
