            This court has independently reviewed the file and approves the jointly recommended disposition.

            IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that respondent Richard G. Day is indefinitely suspended from the practice of law with reinstatement conditioned on the agreed-upon terms set forth above.  Respondent shall pay $900 under Rule 24, RLPR.
