Discipline Summaries

March 1, 2014

JON JAY EARDLEY [#132577], 53, of Aliso Viejo was suspended for one year, stayed, and placed on suspension for six-months and until he proves his rehabilitation. He was also ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect March 1, 2014.

The State Bar Court found Eardley culpable of four counts of misconduct in three matters after his default was entered when he failed to appear at trial. He committed two counts of misrepresentation, appeared on behalf of a party without permission and wrote checks against insufficient funds.

In one of the matters that led to his discipline, Eardley in 2008 filed a notice of removal to federal court for pop singer Britney Spears’ conservatorship case, stating he was representing Spears. Eardley was not Spears’ lawyer and never had been.

In another case, in 2007, Eardley misrepresented to a court that he had not previously submitted a request for a stay in a foreclosure matter when he recently had and falsely stated that he had given notice to the opposing party.

From Aug. 10 through Oct. 7, 2009, he repeatedly issued checks drawn upon his Bank of America account against insufficient funds. At the time, he either knew or was grossly negligent in not knowing there was not enough money in the account.

In mitigation, Eardley had no prior record of discipline in 20 years of practicing law.
