On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, the Supreme Court of California suspended attorney Robert Kenneth Perun for his noncompliance with​​ the terms and​​ conditions of his​​ probation.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Robert Kenneth Perun,” and was brought by the State Bar of California with case no. S278240.
