Trump attorney John Eastman temporarily cannot practice law in DC, court says

The DC Court of Appeals temporarily suspended John Eastman’s law license following a similar decision in California, which did so for his role in a legal strategy to help Donald Trump stay in power after his 2020 election loss.

California State Bar Court Judge Yvette Roland recommended in March that Eastman be disbarred from the state. Roland on Wednesday rejected Eastman’s request to lift his driver’s license suspension, writing that he “failed to demonstrate that he no longer poses a threat to the public.”
