|Cartoon parody of John Hoff as a lawyer with his own rules|
The Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners held the Bar Exam on February 25-26, 2014.
John Willard Hoff was one of the names published as an out of state applicant prior to the test dates.
I received an email response from the Director of the Board of Bar Examiners on March 5, 2014 that stated John Hoff attended and completed the exam that was held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
I had sent a package to the board containing information that suggested John Hoff does not have the moral character to become a licensed attorney in Oklahoma. I have been told that I was not the only person that sent them information however, up until the confirmation was received, it was not known if Hoff attended or if he was allowed to take the test.
The results to the exams will not be known or made public for several months.
The board director informed me of the following...
"An applicant is allowed to take a bar exam in Oklahoma even if the character and fitness portion of their application has not yet been approved. However, should they pass the exam, the applicant is not eligible for admission until the Board has approved their application."The amount of Hoff material that I submitted was substantial and no date was selected for when the board will complete their investigation and decide if Hoff's application will be approved or denied.
This blog will keep the status updated as information is received.
I do not envy the position the Bar Examiners are in with deciding to approve or deny his application because, I think they could regret it if they let Hoff become a lawyer as his history suggests it will be a matter of time before complaints begin to pile against him.
At the same time though, if they deny the application, they should expect to be made into a spectacle circus because of Hoff's history of appealing and fighting every ruling that went against him.
My hope is that Hoff will be denied a license because, John as a lawyer would mean no one is safe from his attacks. A crazed Hoff with access to court records that are not available to non-lawyers is frankly a very disturbing situation that I hope will never happen.
