CAPITOL BRIEFS

OKC lawyer suspended

The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Thursday suspended an Oklahoma City attorney from practicing law until further notice, two months after warning him to stay out of trouble. The high court in September publicly censured Lewis B. Moon, above, for three alcohol-related offenses. The Supreme Court warned Moon in its public censure that he would be suspended from practicing law for two years if he has any more problems. Moon was charged last month with assault, attempted extortion and threatening violence. Moon, 46, is accused of threatening another attorney, saying he would have both the attorney and the attorney's daughter raped and killed. Police reported he made the threat on Oct. 7.

House aide to take new job

John Estus, press secretary for House Speaker Kris Steele, is taking a position with the communications office at the Office of Management and Enterprise Services, which was formerly the state finance office. Estus, above, starts his new duties next week. Steele couldn't seek re-election because of term limits. His term ends next week.

MICHAEL MCNUTT,
