    Petition to amend SC Rule 32 to provide Due Process per Arizona State Constitution Art 2 Sect 23 . If the State Bar unjustly sanctions an Attorney, that Attorney may ask for and shall be provided a new hearing in Superior Court where the evidence shall be examined and the final decision on licensure and discipline made by a Jury randomly selected from the Jury pool.

    There shall be 10 Jurors, clear and convincing evidence, and a unanimous verdict to severely sanction an attorney.

    A license to practice law is a Fundamental Liberty Interest and shall not be arbitrarily denied without Due Process.

    The Fundamental Liberty Interest of any client should be subject to Due Process but Attorneys are not free to defend their clients when Attorneys are denied Due Process by the Rules of the State Bar.

    Coercive control by the State Bar undermines the integrity of the Judicial System.

    ORDERED: Petition to Amend SC Rule 32 - the People Exercising the Final Authority Over Attorney Licensure and Discipline after the State Bar has Made Their Decision - Attorneys Have Rights Also = DENIED.
