On Thursday, March 30, 2023, the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division Third Judicial Department ruled on the petition for reinstatement filed by New Zealand attorney Joo Yeon Leenoh.

The case is styled ‘In the Matter of Joo Yeon Leenoh,’ case #PM-73-23.

According to the Decision and Order on Motion, Leenoh was suspended from practice by a September 2022 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.

After taking into account Leenoh’s sworn affidavit and the correspondence from the Attorney Grievance Commission agreeing with the petition, the Court ruled in favor of Leenoh and reinstated her to the practice of law.

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.”

Ms. Joo Yeon Leenoh has been admitted to the New York Bar, license no. 5462577.
