The civil cases regarding malpractice filed against a Denton attorney by the State Bar of Texas were closed Monday after he resigned his bar license in lieu of discipline, court records indicate.

Rocky Haire of Denton was under investigation by the Texas Commission for Lawyer Discipline for allegedly mishandling and abusing client funds in 19 such cases, with another two cited in a recent filing. While the civil suit was ongoing, the State Bar of Texas sought Haire’s license suspension because it believed he posed a threat to clients and/or prospective clients if he continued practicing, records show.
