( – On Wednesday, California State Bar Judge Yvette Roland ruled that John Eastman should be disbarred following his involvement in former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. 

In the ruling, Roland determined that Eastman was culpable on 10 of the 11 counts that the California State Bar had previously filed. As a result, the state bar had been looking to have Eastman’s license stripped in order to block him from practicing law because of his “misleading statements” regarding election fraud. There had also been accusations against him over his role in “provoking” the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021. 

Roland in the 128-page decision had claimed that considering the circumstances relating to this case, the court was recommending that Eastman be disbarred. She further called for him to pay monetary sanctions amounting to $10,000 to the State Bar of California Client Security Fund.

Eastman’s lawyers have already argued that they would be filing an appeal which would result in the California Supreme Court looking at the case. At the same time, the judge had ordered that Eastman should be transferred to inactive status which would ultimately block him from practicing law. 

This ruling comes after a trial that had lasted over 30 days last year. During the trial, which had concluded in November, Eastman had testified. However, the judge had determined that he was preliminarily culpable. 

Eastman had headed the legal campaign to have the results of the 2020 presidential elections subverted.
