Ind. Courts - Court posts 29-page annual list of attorneys who have failed to comply with certain requirements
The heading to the 29-page order is ORDER OF SUSPENSION OF CERTAIN ATTORNEYS FOR FAILURE TO PAY ATTORNEY REGISTRATION FEES, FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS, and/or FAILURE TO SUBMIT IOLTA CERTIFICATION. From the introduction:
The Clerk of the Court has notified this Court that certain attorneys have failed either to pay the annual registration fee required for them to be licensed to practice law in Indiana or to file an exemption affidavit as contemplated by Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 2, andlor have failed to make the IOLTA certification required by Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 2(f). In addition, the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education has notified the COURT that certain attorneys have failed to comply with the continuing legal education requirements of Admission and Discipline Rule 29, sections 3 or 10.As has been its practice over the years, the Court posted this as a scanned document, which means it cannot be searched or pasted from.
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 oflaw 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 COUli directs that the proscription against the actual practice of law will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Thursday, June 27, 2013. The delay fi-om 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.
And as in the past, the ILB has prepared an OCRed, searchable version of the Order for readers' convenience. (In preparing the conversion, the ILB has already noticed the names of a number of well-recognizable attorneys ...)
