Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court issues attorney discipline action

In the Matter of Richard M. Bash is a 6-page, Per Curiam, attorney discipline action:

This matter is before the Court on the report of the hearing officer appointed by this Court to hear evidence on the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission's "Verified Complaint for Disciplinary Action." We find that Respondent, Richard M. Bash, engaged in attorney misconduct by failure to provide competent legal services to one client and attempted sexual misconduct with another client.

The Respondent's 2000 admission to this state's bar subjects him to this Court's disciplinary jurisdiction. USeeU IND. CONST. art. 7, ยง 4. For his misconduct, we find that Respondent should be suspended from the practice of law in this state for at least 180 days without automatic reinstatement.
