In re Report of the Commission on
Continuing Legal Education.

Respondent.
Case No. CLE-05-43115
O R D E R
This matter originated in this court on the filing of a report by the
Commission on Continuing Legal Education (“commission”) pursuant to Gov.Bar
R. X(6)(A)(1)(b) and (A)(2)(d). The commission recommended the imposition of
sanctions against certain attorneys, including the above-named respondent, for
failure to comply with the provisions of Gov.Bar R. X, Attorney Continuing Legal
Education, for the 2003-2004 reporting period.
On May 16, 2006, this court adopted the recommendation of the
commission, imposed a sanction fee upon the respondent, and suspended the
respondent from the practice of law pursuant to Gov.Bar R. X(6)(B)(3) and
(5)(A)(4). The court further ordered that respondent shall not be reinstated to the
practice of law in Ohio until respondent complies with the requirements for
reinstatement set forth in Gov.Bar R. X(7); respondent complies with the Supreme
Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio; respondent complies with this
and all other orders of the court; and this court orders respondent reinstated.
On May 25, 2006, the commission filed a recommendation pursuant to
Gov.Bar R. X(7)(B)(2) finding that the respondent has paid all fees assessed for
noncompliance, has made up all deficiencies, and is now in full compliance with
all requirements of Gov.Bar R. X, and recommending that the respondent be
reinstated to the practice of law in Ohio. The commission certified that respondent
had completed the credit hours of continuing legal education required during his
suspension by this court’s order of suspension. On May 26, 2006, respondent
satisfied all the requirements of this court’s order of suspension. Upon
consideration thereof,
IT IS ORDERED by the court that the recommendation of the commission is
adopted and respondent, Jeffrey Alan Perlmuter, is hereby reinstated to the practice
of law.
