Georgia Unfiltered has learned that Mike Berlon, chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party, had his law license suspended and received a reprimand from the state Supreme Court.

Pictured right is the State Bar of Georgia membership page for Mike Berlon. Berlon's status is currently OGC Suspension, which, according to the State Bar of Georgia, means Berlon is a state bar "member who has been suspended by Supreme Court Order."

The State Bar of Georgia describes "OGC Suspension" as, "A form of public discipline where the attorney is ineligible to practice law in Georgia for a definite period of time or until satisfaction of certain conditions imposed as a part of the suspension."

The State Supreme Court issued opinion S13Y1054 today, in which all Justices agreed to reprimand the Georgia Democratic Party chairman. Below is the order:
