On April 13, 2005, the Board of Disciplinary Appeals revoked the probation of Fort Worth attorney Edgar Oran Coble, SBOT Card No. 04446000, and suspended him from the practice of law for three years, beginning April 13, 2005. On or about May 4, 2004, Coble consented to an agreed judgment of partially probated suspension signed by the District 07A State Bar of Texas grievance committee. The agreed order found that Coble committed professional misconduct and suspended him from the practice of law for 37 months, of which the first month was active, beginning July 1, 2004, and ending July 31, 2004, and the final 36 months was probated beginning August 1, 2004 and ending July 31, 2007. The Board of Disciplinary Appeals found that Coble violated the terms and conditions of probation in that he failed to make restitution to a former client, failed to file an affidavit with the State Bar of Texas stating that all courts where he had matters pending were notified in writing of his suspension, and failed to file the results of a psychiatric or psychological evaluation with the State Bar of Texas, in violation of the terms and conditions of the agreed judgment.
