For the foregoing reasons, the judgment of the appellate court is affirmed and this matter is remanded to the Ethics Commission for a new hearing as the First Circuit Court of Appeal directed.

The stay order granted by us is lifted and this matter is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the views expressed herein and the views expressed in In re Georgia Gulf, et al.

REVERSED AND REMANDED.
