Territorial Court Suspends Attorneys

     Pursuant to the motion of Virgin Islands Bar Association Treasurer Maxwell D. McIntosh, Presiding Judge of the Territorial Court Maria M. Cabret on Friday, February 8, 2002 suspended 4 members of the Virgin Islands Bar Association for non-payment of dues. The attorneys suspended from the practice of law in the Territory in accordance with 5 V.I.C. V Rule 51(d) were Mujib Mannan (Bar ID No. 208); Ronald Mitchell (Bar ID No. 415); Denise Reovan (Bar ID No. 392); and Robert St. Jacques (Bar ID No. 590).
     
      Attorneys in the Virgin Islands have a responsibility to pay their dues to the unified bar association of the Territory by January of each year. Bar dues not paid by February 1 of each year are subject to an administrative late fee of $25.00. Virgin Islands Bar Association bylaws require the Association's Treasurer to move for the suspension of all members who are not current in their dues on April 1 of each year.
     
      The Virgin Islands Bar Association is the organized membership of the attorneys in the United States Virgin Islands. With almost 1,000 members, the Virgin Islands Bar provides public service programs, continuing legal education, information about the law, programs to assist lawyers and judges in their work, and initiatives to improve the legal system for the public.

It is a plan that has been developed with input from our membership as well as other community members. I am excited that our newly adopted strategic plan is realistic and has attainable goals and benchmarks. It will allow us to finally devlop an association that is responsive to the needs of its members and the wider community that we serve."
