On May 18, the Illinois Supreme Court officially disbarred former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, The Chicago Tribune reported.
The development happened more than two months after a state panel recommended he lose his law license due to his conviction connected to corruption schemes when he was in office.
The one-paragraph order from the court upheld a March decision from the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.
Blagojevich's law license was suspended indefinitely after his arrest by the FBI in December 2008, but the process to officially remove him from the Illinois bar was on hold for years as he appealed his conviction and 14-year prison sentence.
