He doesn't appear to 'practice' much of anything other than running away from bailiffs, and I doubt their Bar Association will do anything.

Inciting personal retribution for disagreeing with an abuse of a legal process isn't something I'd take part in.
I'd rather people sign Charlotte Laws' 'Intolerant Jackass Act' proposal :)

This is the same daft ballot system that Passed Prop 8, which then had to be declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

There is another anti transgender one submitted that requires that individuals "use facilities in accordance with their biological sex in all government buildings"

I see your point horse. But if you're a lawyer don't you need to pass the MPRE, the professional conduct & ethics exam which is a key prerequisite to the bar examination? And as follows any unethical or criminal conduct results in disbarment? I might be wrong but inciting to discrimination, violence and murder is kind of unethical to me - just asking since I'm not an attorney so don't know how the American Bar Association deals with professional misconduct....
