On December 8, 2008, the Maryland Court of Appeals reinstated Ficker to the practice of law after temporarily suspending his law license on June 7, 2007.

Robin Ficker comments on Michael Jordan
Ficker is known for proposing anti-tax ballot initiatives. A county initiative he proposed for the November 2008 ballot (Montgomery County Question B (2008)) prevailed by about 5,000 votes. The measure requires the nine-member Montgomery County Council to vote unanimously to raise property tax revenue above the local limit. The victory earned him the Libertarian Party's Free Market Hero of the week award.
