Supreme Court of the Virgin Islands

In Re Paul Rudolph, Esq. 
Board on Professional Responsibility
Case No.: 2016-36

The Board on Professional Responsibility gives notice of  a Public Reprimand. 

Underlying Facts and Rules Violated:

On March 4, 2013, the Supreme Court of Arizona entered an order in case number PDJ-2012-9065 ordering inter alia, the public reprimand of Paul B. Rudolph (hereinafter "Rudolph") for misconduct found by the Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Supreme Court of Arizona. This order was forwarded to the Virgin Islands Supreme Court, as Rudolph is an inactive member of the Virgin Islands Bar. The Supreme Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands in its October 1, 2014 Order, directed Rudolph to show cause as to why the Court should not impose reciprocal discipline for the misconduct the Arizona Supreme Court found in its March 4, 2013 Order. Rudolph responded to the Court on October 20, 2014, that he consented to the imposition of identical reciprocal discipline. 

On June 8, 2016, the Supreme Court of the Virgin Islands issued an order in S.Ct. Civ No. 2014-0062 (hereinafter "June 2016 Order") ordering the Board on Professional Responsibility (hereinafter the "Board") to issue a public reprimand of Rudolph as a sanction for violating the Arizona Rules of Professional Conduct. The Board through Disciplinary Counsel opened Docket 2016-36 in order to comply with the Court's June 2016 Order. 

Therefore, in accordance with Rule 207.14 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Office of Disciplinary Counsel shall publicly disseminate all information relating to this matter to:

- The disciplinary enforcement agency in any jurisdiction in which the respondent is admitted,

- The chief judicial officers of all courts of this Territory,

- The chief judicial officers of all federal courts located in this Territory, the United States Courts of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court, 

- Any national data bank maintained for the purposes of reporting disciplinary action relating to lawyers, and

- the news media.

SANCTION IMPOSED: PAUL B. RUDOLPH is hereby PUBLICLY REPRIMANDED.
