Conduct Board Files Disciplinary Case Reports, Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct has filed 10 disciplinary case reports with the Supreme Court of Ohio.  Eight reports recommend discipline for attorneys charged with professional misconduct, and two reports recommend discipline for sitting judges.

The parties will have an opportunity to file objections to the Board’s reports and recommendations with the Supreme Court.  If a party files objections, the Supreme Court will schedule the case for oral argument.  Objections are not permitted in a case submitted upon consideration of a consent-to-discipline agreement, and oral arguments are not scheduled in reinstatement proceedings.

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 the Supreme Court’s Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
