Per Curiam:

   And Now, this 15th day of April, 2004, pursuant to this Court's inherent and exclusive power to supervise the conduct of attorneys, as set forth in Section 10(c) of Article V of the Constitution of Pennsylvania, and in furtherance thereof, It Is Hereby Ordered that every attorney admitted to practice law in this Commonwealth and selecting active status shall respond to all inquiries made by the Administrative Office pursuant to Rule 219(d)(1)(vi), Pa.R.D.E. concerning professional liability insurance. Responses to such inquiries will be used to provide statistical information to the Court and will be kept strictly confidential.

   It is Further Ordered that the failure to fully respond to all such inquiries shall be deemed a request for transfer to inactive status, and the Administrative Office shall certify the names of such attorneys to the Court, which shall immediately enter an order transferring the attorney to inactive status. Attorneys transferred to inactive status for failure to respond shall not regain active status until they have fully responded to all such inquiries.


   To obtain current, accurate information about the financial responsibility of each attorney electing to assume or continue active status for professional liability claims, the Supreme Court requires this certification to be fully executed and returned with your 2004-2005 Annual Fee Form to:  Administrative Office of PA Courts/Lawyer Assessment, P. O.
