"The office of disciplinary counsel shall monitor [Arceneaux]'s compliance with his recovery agreement and notify this court of any violation, which may be grounds for immediately returning respondent to disability inactive status," the Supreme Court's order said.
The order was effective immediately.
Arceneaux was admitted to the bar in Louisiana on Oct. 18, 2007, according to his profile at the Louisiana State Bar Association's website. Arceneaux's profile lists no prior discipline before the bar. His law office is in Thibodaux, according to his profie.

He was placed on inactive status due to disability or hardship, according to information on his state bar profile. "All disciplinary proceedings against [Arceneaux] shall be deferred until such time as he resumes active status," the June 2015 order said.
The June 2015 order was effective immediately.
Arceneaux is past president of the Lafourche Parish Bar Association. He joined the Thibodaux Bar Association in October 2007, about a week after he was admitted to the bar in the state.
