ELC 2.13 RESPONDENT LAWYER (a) Right to Representation. A lawyer may be represented by counsel during any stage of an investigation or proceeding under these rules. (b) Restrictions on Representation of Respondent. A former Association president, a former Board of Governors member, or a former Disciplinary Board member cannot represent a respondent lawyer in any proceeding under these rules until three years after leaving office. Service as an Adjunct Review Committee Member or as a Member Pro Tempore of the Board does not invoke this rule. (c) Restriction on Charging Fee To Respond to Grievance. A respondent lawyer may not seek to charge a grievant a fee or recover costs from a grievant for responding to a grievance unless otherwise permitted by these rules. (d) Medical and Psychological Records. A respondent must furnish written releases or authorizations to permit disciplinary counsel access to medical, psychiatric, or psychological records as may be relevant to the investigation or proceeding, subject to a motion to the chief hearing officer, or the hearing officer if one has been appointed, to limit the scope of the requested releases or authorizations for good cause shown. [Adopted effective October 1, 2002.]
