The State Bar of Texas implemented new rules of Professional Conduct in 2011. I would like to bring to the attention of the readers,
PART XIV INTERIM SUSPENSION, 14.01 IRREPARABLE HARM TO CLIENTS: which states in pertinent part "should the Chief Disciplinary Counsel reasonably believe based upon investigation of a Complaint that an attorney poses a substantial threat of irreparable harm to clients or prospective clients and be authorized to do so by the Commission, the Chief Disciplinary Counsel shall seek the IMMEDIATE interim suspension of the attorney.
If complaints have been made to the State Bar of Texas by reader's of this blog, it seems that 7 1st Degree Felony Indictments would more than qualify for this action, since it would be reasonable to assume that any funds Rogers' raises or may steal would be in connection with his status of good standing with The State Bar of Texas.
I don't know if the complainants were aware of this, but it seems to me a good vehicle to prevent further fraud by Rogers.

(We had previously talked with Gene Lunt who said that all someone has to do is fill out a complaint form and send it into him. Apparently, no one has)
