The Mississippi Supreme Court says Gulfport attorney Eric J. Eubanks accepted full payment from two clients, then failed to show up for Youth Court hearings where he was supposed to represent them, resulting in a three-year suspension from the practice of law.
To be reinstated to the Mississippi Bar Association after his suspension is finished, The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/29UyShr) Eubanks must pass the state bar exam again.
The Mississippi Bar filed a formal complaint against Eubanks with the state Supreme Court in September 2015.
A complaint tribunal of the state Supreme Court suspended Eubanks in April. Records filed with the U.S. District Court for Mississippi’s Southern District as recently as Wednesday indicate Eubanks did not respond to the bar complaint or court notices about the suspension.
