Thank you and the Florida Bar for the Hawkins Report, a.k.a. the Hawkins Commission on Review of Discipline System, May 2012. The Florida Bar should be commended for publishing the many negative and critical responses to its surveys. The ABA McKay Report recommended in 1992 elimination of “local discipline components” which it claimed “foster cronyism as well as prejudice against unpopular respondents”. The ABA Clark Report reached a similar conclusion in 1970. Unfortunately, forty-three (43) years later the Florida Bar still relies on “local discipline components” in its discipline system. This issue and others are presented in the attached Petitioner’s Supplemental Brief, and Separate Volume Appendices, in Petition No. 12-7747 for writ of certiorari in the Supreme Court of the United States. A U.P.S. Proof of Delivery shows the Brief was delivered at 10:21 AM today. Please excuse the inadvertent typos due to the undersigned’s disability and mental impairment. Your personal involvement in this matter is shown in the Brief on page 9: Gwynne A. Young was one of three Florida Bar Board of Governors for the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit who reviewed this discipline matter in 2007. (Appendix 8). Discipline responsibility and authority for the Board of Governors is found in the table of authorities cited. Gwynne A. Young is currently the President of The Florida Bar.
