DR-9 Service of Complaint, Papers and Other Notices

Upon the filing of a complaint instituting a disciplinary proceeding, the clerk shall forthwith issue a summons and deliver the summons and a copy of the complaint to the United States Marshal for service in the manner provided in Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(e)(2) or, if such service cannot be made, by registered or certified mail addressed to the respondent-attorney at the attorney's last known address. The summons shall direct the respondent-attorney to serve an answer within thirty (30) days after service. An order of suspension shall be served in the same manner as a summons and complaint instituting a disciplinary proceeding. Service of any other papers or notices required by these rules shall be deemed to have been made if such paper or notice is addressed to the respondent-attorney at the attorney's last known address or to counsel or the respondent's attorney at the address indicated in the most recent pleading or other document filed by them in the course of any proceeding.
