LRGAL 7. SANCTIONS. The committee shall have the authority to issue a written admonishment, issue a written reprimand, refer the guardian ad litem to additional testing, recommend to the presiding judge either that the court, on its own motion, remove the guardian ad litem from the instant case, or that the presiding judge suspend or remove the guardian ad litem from the registry. In considering a sanction, the committee shall take into consideration any prior complaints which resulted in an admonishment, reprimand, referral to training, removal of the guardian ad litem from a particular case, or suspension or removal from a registry. If a guardian ad litem is listed on more than one registry, at the discretion of the committee, the suspension or removal may apply to each registry on which the guardian ad litem is listed. When a guardian ad litem is removed from a registry pursuant to the disposition of a grievance, the court shall send notice of such removal to the state Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC). [Adopted effective September 1, 2004.]
