The court has suspended the lawyer for John Carmacks’ motorbike lawyers.
Carmack’s attorney was dismissed last month by the Supreme Court.
The Court suspended Carmack, who is also a former United States president, from representing himself in court.
He had been accused of misleading judges in the trial of another motorbike rider who was killed in a crash on his motorcycle in October.
Carmack was also the lawyer of the late Robert “Bob” Stearns, who was found dead on his bike in August.
Prosecutors allege Carmack used his influence as the former US president to protect his client’s reputation and protect the reputation of his client.
In a statement, Carmack said the suspension was in response to the Supreme Judicial Court’s order that he be allowed to represent himself.
“My lawyer is not involved in the proceedings.
I am fully committed to my client and our clients’ rights and I hope that the court will also give me the benefit of the doubt,” Carmack told reporters.

According to the Court’s statement, he will be allowed, if he so wishes, to provide an affidavit under oath and be interviewed.
‘Unwelcome interference’The Court’s ruling comes as the motorbike deaths have been the subject of a national conversation about race and justice.
President Donald Trump called the motorbikes’ deaths “horrific” on Saturday.
Trump has been widely criticised for his comments and Carmack has been asked by the US president whether he agreed with his comments.
Earlier, Carmacks attorney in the case, Matthew Ahern, had told the court that Carmack had not made any decisions on the case and that the trial was a “tactical” case for him to represent his client to the highest court in the land.

Ahern argued that Carmacks refusal to comply with the court order to provide the affidavit would constitute “unwelcome” interference in a trial.
This was because Carmack did not give his consent to the court’s order, which was based on a false representation of his own conduct, the Court said.
Cavalier-Morrison case, US, US Supreme Court, October 24, 2017In October, Carmacked’s lawyer, Matthew C. Ahern told the Court that Carmacking had no intention of attending the trial.
Carmacks lawyer had argued that the suspension of Carmack would be “unreasonable”.
He told the Supreme court that he did not believe Carmacks suspension would be unjustified.
Judge Christopher E. Tymkovich said he had to make a decision.
It would be up to the justices, he said.
Carnier-Morrow case, France, France Supreme Court: Carmack denies being ‘unwilling’ to provide evidence, November 9, 2017Ahern was in court on Tuesday to answer questions from the court.
In October Carmacks lawyer told the judges that he had not decided on whether he would be allowed or not to represent Carmack in court, but that he was “confident” that Carmacked would be able to do so.
The Supreme Court’s decision came after the court granted a request by Carmacks lawyers to have the suspension lifted, citing the “widespread and ongoing concern” in the US.
As of today, Carmakers lawyers had been able to obtain permission from the Supreme Courts to represent him in court as long as they had written a letter explaining that they were not seeking to represent the president in the court, the court said.
Carniers lawyers argued that he would not have been able in the past to present evidence for a trial if he had been barred from doing so.
