According to a spokesperson with the court, the Supreme Court granted leave for Nathan Cooper to file the answer to motion for interim suspension Friday.

Cooper filed the the motion Friday saying he was out of town and was given less than 24 hours notice to respond to the order.

Cooper states in the motion that he will voluntarily surrender his law license on September 1st. 

Heartland News learned late Friday afternoon that the Supreme Court of Missouri ordered the interim suspension.

Cooper pleaded guilty to immigration fraud charges on August 9th.
