Conduct Board Files Disciplinary Case Reports and Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct has filed eight disciplinary case reports with the Ohio Supreme Court. Each report recommends discipline for an attorney charged with professional misconduct.

The parties will have an opportunity to file objections to the board’s report and recommendation with the Supreme Court. If a party files objections, the Supreme Court will schedule the case for oral argument. Oral arguments are not 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 Supreme Court case number. Questions regarding cases pending before the Supreme Court should be directed to Court’s Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
