Publisher Description

Gary Peter Klahr (hereinafter referred to as applicant) took the written examination for admission to the Bar in February of 1967; however, the Committee on Examinations and Admissions refused to grade his examination because doubt had been raised as to his moral character. On March 10, 1967, on a request by certain members of the regular committee to withdraw from consideration of this case, we ordered that a special committee investigate the qualifications of the applicant, and report their findings to this court. After a hearing on July 8th and 14th, 1967, a majority of the special committee filed their report in which they refused to recommend the applicant for admission "based on the existence of substantial doubt" as to his good moral character. A minority of two committee members filed a dissent in which they recommended that the applicant be admitted. On August 22, 1967, the applicant filed a petition for review and an application for admission to the State Bar of Arizona pursuant to our newly adopted Rule 28(c), XI(E), (C), 17 A.R.S., Ariz.Sup.Ct.Rules. On November 3, 1967, we entered an order in which we accepted the minority report of the Special Committee on Admissions. That minority report concluded that the evidence failed to overcome the applicants prima facie proof of good moral character.
