On February 24, 2005, the Board of Disciplinary Appeals dismissed for want of prosecution the appeal of the complainant, Nazir Charania, of a judgment of dismissal of a complaint against Houston attorney Thomas R. Adkins, 58, SBOT Card No. 00919000, issued by the Evidentiary Panel for the State Bar of Texas District 04B grievance committee in Case No. H00120316950. The Board found that the Appellant, Charania, did not file a reporter's record or a brief. The Board issued an Order to Show Cause to Charania on December 28, 2004, giving him 30 days to respond and show cause as to why this appeal should not be dismissed for want of prosecution. Charania responded but did not show good cause why his appeal should not be dismissed.
