TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) - State officials want a Torrington lawyer disbarred for violating a ban on representing women.

The state Office of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel asked a state judge earlier this month to disbar Ira Mayo, saying he violated a recent court order by representing a woman in Litchfield Superior Court in July.

The Connecticut Law Tribune reports that Mayo was reinstated to the bar in 2007 after a 15-month suspension for allegedly making unwanted sexual advances toward female clients.

A judge in 2010 banned him from representing women in domestic violence and family cases.

Mayo agreed in July to a four-month suspension and a lifetime ban on representing women in any type of case, after admitting to representing at least 11 women since 2010.

Mayo didn’t immediately return phone messages Tuesday.
