Local News Outlets Reporting Brown Surrendered His Law License...That Ain't So, Says the Supreme Court


UPDATE: The Supreme Court on Monday morning received Brown's request to surrender his license. 

Both the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the St. Louis Business Journal reported today that former state rep Steve Brown, an attorney, surrendered his law license earlier this week. 

Not so, says an e-update from a spokeswoman for the Supreme Court of Missouri. She says neither the court clerk, nor the lawyer in charge of suspensions and disbarments, Alan Pratzel, have heard from Brown or his attorney.

Earlier today Pratzel began formal proceedings to suspend Brown.
