Former High Court Registrar disbarred from practicing law in the OECS

Former High Court Registrar, Vanessa Tamara Gibson-Marks has been disbarred from practicing law in the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

The judgement was handed down on February 18th, this year, by High Court Judge Esco L. Henry and Acting High Court Judge Pearletta Lanns of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.

The Judges ruled that Mrs. Gibson-Marks be struck off the roll of Barristers and Solicitors after she conducted herself improperly and unprofessionally in the discharge of her professional duty by misappropriating monies held in a trust account amounting to $350,000 with interest.

In October 2014, Gibson-Marks was fined EC$10,500 after she pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing EC$21,925 and abuse of her authority as Registrar of the High Court.

Attorney General Judith Jones-Morgan had filed an application to have Gibson-Marks disbarred from practicing law.
