Conduct Board Files Disciplinary Reports, Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct announced today that it has filed five disciplinary case reports with the Ohio Supreme Court. Three reports recommend discipline for attorneys charged with professional misconduct, one report recommends discipline for a sitting judge, and one report recommends the reinstatement of a suspended attorney.

Each party will have an opportunity to file objections to the board’s reports and recommendations with the Court. If a party files objections, the 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 Court case number. Questions regarding cases pending before the Court should be directed to the Court’s Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
