In the Matter of John Rex Thompson

On October 20, 2016, by agreement the Board of Disciplinary Appeals revoked the probation of Tyler attorney John Rex Thompson, 51, State Bar of Texas Card No. 19956150 and suspended him from the practice of law for 18 months, beginning November 1, 2016 and ending April 30, 2018, stayed conditioned upon his compliance with the terms and conditions in the agreed judgment.  

On or about December 8, 2015, evidentiary panel 2-4 of the State Bar of Texas District 2 Grievance Committee signed two judgments of Partially Probated Suspension in causes 201402358 and 201403357 against Mr. Thompson. The judgments found that Thompson committed professional misconduct by violating the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct and suspended him from the practice of law for 19 months with the last 18 months of the suspension probated on certain terms and conditions.

The Board of Disciplinary Appeals found that Thompson materially violated the terms and conditions of both judgments of probated suspension. BODA cause number 58071.
