The Kansas Supreme Court has disbarred a former Navy lawyer who was convicted during a court martial in 2007 for mailing secret information about Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The justices issued a ruling Wednesday rejecting efforts by Matthew Diaz, who was licensed to practice law in Kansas in 1995, to have his license reinstated so he could practice law in New York.

The Office of Judicial Administration had recommended that the justices suspend his law license for three years starting in 2008, which would have made him eligible to get it reinstated immediately.

Messages left for Diaz and his attorney weren't immediately returned.

Diaz is living in New York. He earned his law degree in 1994 from Washburn University in Topeka and was admitted to practice law in Kansas.
