06/08/2000Order/DispositionalFiled Order Denying Petition. This is a proper person petition for a writ of prohibition of mandamus. fn1[We note that petitioner has not paid the filing fee required by NRS 2.250. We conclude that the documents submitted demonstrate good cause to waive the filing fee. Although petitioner was not granted leave to appear in proper person pursuant to NRAP 46(b), we have considered the documents submitted on petitioner's behalf, and deny the relief requested as moot in light of this order. We note that the petition was signed by a person named John L. Conner, on behalf of petitioner. It appears that Mr. Conner may be an attorney currently on medical disability inactive status in this state. We therefore direct the clerk's office to serve a copy of this order on bar counsel, and refer this matter to bar counsel for the investigation and prosecution of any ethical violations arising from Mr. Conner's apparent practice of law while on disability inactive status. Bar counsel shall submit a report to this court within 120 days of the date of this order. We further caution Mr. Conner that the unauthorized practice of law is a crime.] " . . . we deny the petition." NNP99B-RR/CY/DA 00-09661
