Board of Professional Conduct Files Disciplinary Case Reports and Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct today announced it has filed 12 disciplinary case reports with the Supreme Court of Ohio.

  • Ten reports recommend discipline for attorneys charged with professional misconduct.
  • One report recommends the reinstatement of a suspended lawyer to the practice of law.
  • One report recommends imposition of an impairment suspension.

The parties in each case will have an opportunity to file objections to the Board’s report and recommendation with the Supreme Court. If objections are filed, the case will be scheduled for oral argument. No oral argument is scheduled in reinstatement proceedings, and objections are not permitted in a case submitted upon consideration of a consent to discipline agreement.

Additional information about each case, including the report and recommendation, may be obtained by clicking on the link for each case. Questions regarding pending cases should be directed to the Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
