Ind. Decisions - More on: "Indiana Supreme Court suspends Bloomington lawyer"
Discipline: Respondent's illegal attempt at a drug sting without the assistance of law enforcement, aggravated by his complete lack of any insight into his misconduct and his repeated and unfounded attacks on those involved in his criminal case and this disciplinary proceeding, demonstrate Respondent's need for a substantial period of suspension followed by a rigorous reinstatement proceeding before resuming practice.The "without automatic reinstatement" clause is most significant part of the penalty, as discussed in this Jan. 13, 2011 ILB post.
For Respondent's professional misconduct, the Court suspends Respondent from the practice of law in this state for a period of not less than nine months, without automatic reinstatement, beginning May 24, 2013.
