Deters retired from practicing law in Ohio after his license to practice in Kentucky was suspended, according to the Kentucky Bar Association. The Kentucky Supreme Court denied his request to reinstate his license earlier this year, saying that he seems unwilling to follow the rules of being a lawyer.
“As we understand Deters’ concept of the practice of law, no rules of professional responsibility, no statute, no case law bind him. Deters’ practice of law is not governed by constitution, rule of law or procedure. It is anarchy,” the state supreme court wrote.
