Ind. Courts - "Former Lake clerk about to lose law license"

Bill Dolan's report today in the NWI Times begins:

State officials have begun the process of suspending the law license of former Lake County clerk Thomas R. Philpot in the wake of his conviction for public corruption.

The Indiana Disciplinary Commission, an agency of the Indiana Supreme Court, will seek suspension of Philpot's future ability to practice law in the state. The request comes seven months after a federal jury found him guilty of felony theft and mail fraud.

For background start with this March 27th ILB entry headed "Ind. Decisions - More on: "Former Lake County Coroner and Clerk Thomas Philpot sentenced to 18 months for public corruption"."

BTW, the headline "Former Lake clerk about to lose law license" may be misleading, it generally takes some time for disciplinary matters to proceed.
