Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Yes, he is required to report any 'formal' sanctions to his local bar(s) or wherever he holds a license. He has no obligation to report any informal sanctions, but anything formally ordered against him has to be provided to the current licensing board because they can choose to pursue their own ethics violations, or have the original state pursue. Failure to report would be seen is a violation because it is now a material omission.
