Ind. Decisions - Tim Durham suspended from law practice

In an Order posted today, filed Feb. 14th, the Supreme Court orders:

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission, pursuant to Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 23(11.1)(a), has filed a "Notice of Guilty Finding and Request for Suspension," asking that Respondent be suspended from the practice of law in this State, pending further order of this Court or final resolution of any resulting disciplinary action, due to Respondent being found guilty of a crime punishable as a felony.

The Court, being duly advised and upon careful consideration of all materials submitted, now finds that Respondent was adjudicated guilty based on jury verdicts of ten counts of wire fraud, one count of securities fraud, and one count of conspiracy to commit wire and securities fraud, all of which are felonies under federal law.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Respondent is suspended pendente lite from the practice of law in this State, effective immediately. Respondent is already under a suspension for dues nonpayment. Respondent is ordered to fulfill the continuing duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26). The interim suspension shall continue until further order of this Court or final resolution of any resulting disciplinary action, provided no other suspension is in effect.
