Elizabeth Warren has touted that she has been a member of the Texas Bar for a long time, along with New Jersey.
We knew that Warren currently was inactive in Texas, but didn’t know for how long. Also, there has been a mystery as to why she withdrew her New Jersey membership on September 11 of this year, which has had the effect of taking out of public view whether Warren was active in New Jersy and for what years.
While I reported in my original post that Warren was inactive in Texas, Rob Eno at Red Mass Group has the scoop that Warren has been on “inactive” status in Texas since 1992. In an e-mail to Eno, the Texas Bar wrote:
“Inactive status” basically means that the lawyer cannot practice law in Texas. Following is a link to information on our website that goes into more detail:
Our electronic records indicate that Elizabeth Warren has been on inactive status since 6/1/92.
Since the Texas Bar is a mandatory Bar, meaning licensed lawyers must be a member (same thing in Rhode Island), being inactive with the Texas Bar effectively is being inactive in practice.
But what’s bigger is that Warren represented Cambridge, Massachusetts as her “primary practice location” with the Texas Bar.
The emails and documents are over at Red Mass Group.
The implausibility of Warren maintaining that she was not practicing law in Massachusetts grows by the hour.
(Now the tease. Stay tuned for a morning post from me.)
