As amended through Rule Change 2021(22), effective October 14, 2021
Rule 237 - Civil Injunction Proceedings; Determination by Court(a) After review of the report of the hearing master, together with any objections and briefs, the Supreme Court may adopt the report or modify or reject it in whole or in part and shall determine as a matter of law whether the respondent has been engaged in the unauthorized practice of law. If the Supreme Court finds that the respondent was engaged in the unauthorized practice of law, the Supreme Court may enter an order enjoining the respondent from further conduct found to constitute the unauthorized practice of law, and make such further orders as it may deem appropriate, including restitution and the assessment of costs.(b) Nothing in this rule shall be construed to limit the power of the Supreme Court, upon proper application, to issue an injunction at any stage of the proceeding in order to prevent public harm.
