The California Bar has jurisdiction over the attorney and can sanction, censure, suspend or disbar any attorney found guilty of a wide variety of transgressions. They cannot do this, though, without conducting a hearing and issuing a finding and recommendation that is reviewable by the court.

A licensing bar regulates the professional ethical behavior of its licensees. Very little behavior not in the service of a client (commission of a crime is the primary exception) is regulated as a matter of ethics. It is possible, therefore, that a bar association would be powerless to sanction an attorney functioning as a self-represented litigant.
