These matters are scheduled to be reviewed by the Board on Thursday, February 3, 2000. R.1:20-4(f) provides that an attorney-respondentís failure to timely file an answer Ashall be deemed an admission that the allegations of the complaint are true and . . . provide sufficient basis for the imposition of discipline.@ Although chances for a successful motion are limited, a Motion to Vacate Default may be filed with the Board prior to the scheduled review. That motion should specify why the attorney-respondent failed to file a timely answer (including lack of notice) and should set forth any claimed meritorious defenses to the ethics charges.

Respondents may communicate with the Board by contacting the Office of Board Counsel at: P.O. Box 962, Trenton, NJ 08625, Telephone: 609-292-1012
