Board of Professional Conduct Files Disciplinary Recommendations

The Board of Professional Conduct has filed five disciplinary case reports with the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Four reports recommend discipline for attorneys charged with professional misconduct. One report recommends denying the reinstatement of a suspended attorney.

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 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 case number below. Questions regarding cases pending before the Court should be directed to the Court’s Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
