Conduct Board Files Attorney Discipline Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct has filed three disciplinary case reports with the Supreme Court of Ohio, each recommending discipline for an Ohio attorney.

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 consent-to-discipline matters.
