Caroline Kennedy, who has been widely reported as being in line for President Barack Obama’s nomination as ambassador to Japan, has brought her attorney registration current, according to the New York State Office of Court Administration’s (OCA) Web site.
On April 2, I had reported that OCA’s attorney directory listed Kennedy as having let her registration lapse. Click here for story.
The 166,000 attorneys practicing in New York State are required to re-register every two years and pay a $375 fee. David Bookstaver, the spokesman for New York’s court system confirmed that Kennedy has brought her registration current with the payment of $750 covering the two registration periods that had passed since she last registered in December 2008.
Attorneys are required to re-register within 30 days of their birthdays. Kennedy’s registration is now listed as current through November 2014.
The President’s nominations of ambassadors are subject to Senate confirmation.
