In the Matter of Henry H. Cabaniss, Petitioner.
On January 26, 1998, petitioner was suspended for two years from the practice of law in this state. In the Matter of Cabaniss, 329 S.C. 366, 495 S.E.2d 779 (1998). Petitioner has now filed a petition for reinstatement. The Committee on Character and Fitness recommends the petition be granted, subject to the following conditions:
1. After reinstatement, petitioner must establish and continue a patient/psychologist relationship with a psychologist for one year with the psychologist filing written reports with the Court every six months during that period.
2. Petitioner must practice under the supervision of a mentor if he returns to the private practice of law or, if he enters corporate practice, must practice under the direction of a supervisor, and the mentor or supervisor must file a written report with the Court every six months for a one year period.
We grant the petition, subject to the conditions set forth by the Committee on Character and Fitness, and reinstate petitioner to the practice of law in South Carolina. However, all required reports from petitioner's psychologist and supervisor or mentor should be filed with the Office of Disciplinary Counsel instead of this Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
