IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF OREGON

In the Matter of the Application of BRIAN JOHN PERRY,

For Admission to the Oregon State Bar.

(SC S45936)

En Banc

On review of the recommendation of the Oregon State Board of Bar Examiners.

Submitted on the record March 4, 1999.

Jeffrey D. Sapiro, Oregon State Bar, Lake Oswego, filed the brief on behalf of the Oregon State Board of Bar Examiners.

No appearance contra.

PER CURIAM

Admission denied.

PER CURIAM

The issue in this contested admission proceeding is whether Brian John Perry (applicant) has proved by clear and convincing evidence that he is a person of good moral character and fit to practice law in Oregon. ORS 9.220(2)(a); Rules for Admission of Attorneys (RFA) 9.45(6). A discussion of the facts surrounding this application, and the circumstances that have led the Bar to oppose it, would not benefit the Bar or the public. After de novo review of the record developed before a hearing panel of the Board of Bar Examiners, ORS 9.536(3), ORS 9.539; RFA 9.60(5); and Bar Rule of Procedure 10.6, we conclude that applicant has not proved that he possesses the requisite good moral character and fitness to practice law in this state. Accordingly, we deny applicant admission to practice law in the State of Oregon.

Admission denied.
