Ind. Decisions - Annual Supreme Court order of suspension of certain attorneys

Here is the annual 2-page Order (filed and posted today), followed by a 12-page Exhibit. From the Order:

The Court finds that the attorneys listed on Exhibit A, which is attached to and expressly made a part of this order, have not complied with the Admission and Discipline Rules mentioned above, the basis or bases of their noncompliance being listed to the immediate right of each attorney's bar number. Accordingly, this Court finds that such attorneys should be and therefore ARE SUSPENDED from the practice of law in the State of Indiana.

Although the suspension is effective as of the date of this order for purposes of the reinstatement procedures that must be followed and/or any reinstatement fees that must be paid for reinstatement, the Court directs that the proscription against the actual practice of law will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Friday, June 22, 2012. The delay from the date of this order to the suspension date is for the sole purpose of allowing time for copies of this order to be sent, received, and acted upon by the suspended attorneys.

Notably, more than 5 pages of the addresses are located out-of-state.

Also, it appears that at least one page of names is missing. Page 5 of 14 of the PDF document ends with one name from LaPorte County. The following page (the pages of the document are not numbered) begins with a "Brown" in Marion County, but there is no "Marion County" heading.

[More] Okay, just as I was about to post, IndianaCourts tweeted that a new order was being posted. Good catch. The new one totals 26 pages, including the 2-page order itself. Marion County starts at p. 8 of the PDF. Out-of-state starts at p. 15 of 26. I'd guess they only got one side of the pages the first time.

[Still More] Another tweet from the Indiana Courts: "Suspension list is actually 26 pages. Total of 302 attorneys suspended. 134 of them for CLE and 216 for annual fees, some for both." Glad for the break-down.

[Even More] As I was paging through, I saw at least two out-of-state addresses mingled among the Indiana addresses ...

A notable Marion County name -- Tim Durham.
