State Bar Replaces Its General Counsel

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, November 25, 2014

SACRAMENTO — State Bar employees were told internally Friday that Thomas Miller is no longer serving as the organization's general counsel.

A spokeswoman for the Bar confirmed that Larry Yee, formerly a deputy general counsel, is now acting as the top legal adviser to the agency that oversees more than 249,000 California lawyers. Laura Ernde declined to say what Miller's employment status is or to provide any other information.

Miller's apparent departure follows the Nov. 7 ouster by the board of trustees of executive director Joe Dunn. Dunn was criticized in a board-initiated report that concluded he had failed to uphold his fiduciary duties to the Bar and misled trustees about a number of important issues. Dunn's attorney, Mark Geragos, has called the report's findings categorically false and inaccurate.

The report, prepared by attorneys with Munger, Tolles & Olson, also leveled criticism at Miller for not stepping in to provide accurate information to trustees when Dunn had not, according to people who have seen the communique.
