The Illinois Supreme Court on May 23 announced amendments to Rules 767 and 773, which are effective July 1.

Amendments to both rules pertain to costs associated with attorney reinstatement following disbarment or suspension.

Amended Rule 767 now requires a petition of reinstatement to be accompanied by a $1,500 deposit to be applied against costs.

Amended Rule 773 in part raises the maximum amount of costs the court may order an attorney to pay for disciplinary matters and proceedings.
