The Paris Court of Appeal decides on a stay of proceedings in the file concerning the striking off of the Martinican lawyer Alex Ursulet.
“Stay of ruling”, that is to say postponement of the decision, such is the decision of the Paris Court of Appeal this Thursday, April 14, 2022.
Master Ursulet is being prosecuted for rape by a former intern. Those are the same facts that led to his disbarment,”it is therefore difficult to rule on the question of delisting as long as the legal aspect of the case is still in progress”say its defenders.
The investigation is continuing and it is not yet known when the criminal trial will take place.
In 2019, Alex Ursulet was expelled from the Paris bar after being accused of rape by a former trainee. The criminal appealed this decision. Its suspensive nature allows it to continue to exercise its activity.
The Bar Council had ordered his removal from the Paris Bar for serious failure to perform his duties. The lawyer proclaims his innocence and denounces a masquerade.
