LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court has suspended 934 lawyers for failing to pay fees owed to the state.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1EU7nNC ) reports an order suspending 934 of the roughly 10,500 lawyers licensed to practice in Arkansas was issued Thursday. According to Arkansas Bar Association President Brian Ratcliff, a copy of the list of suspended attorneys will be given to every judge in the state.

The attorneys, more than 60 percent of whom have out-of-state addresses, will not be allowed in a courtroom until they have paid their license fees as well as late-payment fees.

According to the Supreme Court clerk’s office, lawyers in their first three years of practice are expected to pay $125 a year, while the rest pay $200 annually.
