SCR 3.050 Collection of dues; suspension for non-payment
If dues are not paid on or before September 1, then an additional late payment fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) shall be assessed. On or before September 15 of each year, the Treasurer shall notify a member in writing of his/her delinquency and late fee. On or before October 15 of each year, the Treasurer shall in writing certify to the Board the names of all members who remain delinquent. The Board shall cause to be sent to the member a notice of delinquency by certified mail, return receipt requested, at the member's bar roster address. Such notice shall require the member to show cause within thirty (30) days from the date of the mailing why the member's law license should not be suspended for failure to pay dues and the late fee under this rule or SCR 3.023. In addition, such notice shall inform the member that if such dues and late fees, as well as costs in the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00), are not paid within thirty (30) days, or unless good cause is shown within thirty (30) days that a suspension should not occur, the lawyer will be stricken from the membership roster as an active member of the KBA and suspended from the practice of law. At the conclusion of the thirty (30) days, unless the dues, late fees and additional costs payment have been received, or unless good cause has been shown as to why the member should not be suspended, the Board of Governors will vote to suspend any such member from the practice of law. A copy of the suspension notice shall be sent by the Director to the member, the Clerk of the Supreme Court of Kentucky, the Director of Membership, and the Circuit Clerk of the member's roster address district for recording and indexing. The suspended member may apply for restoration to membership under the provisions of SCR 3.504. A member may appeal to the Supreme Court of Kentucky from such suspension within thirty (30) days of the date the suspension notice is recorded in the membership records. Such appeal shall include an affidavit showing good cause why the suspension should be revoked.
