Ind. Decisions - Well known Indiana attorney, Stanley Kahn disciplined by Supreme Court

Readers may recall this Dec. 12, 2012 disciplinary order, where Mr. Kahn was " suspended from the practice of law for noncooperation with the Commission, effective immediately," followed by this Jan. 6, 2012 order, where Mr. Kahn was reinstated after cooperation.

Today there is posted online a new, 3-page attorney disciplinary order from the Supreme Court, headed In the Matter of Stanley Kahn, filed Jan. 17, 2014. The matter concerns client trust accounts. The resolution:

For Respondent's professional misconduct, the Court suspends Respondent from the practice of law for a period of six months, all stayed subject to completion of 18 months of probation. The Court incorporates by reference the terms and conditions of probation set forth in the parties’ Conditional Agreement, which include:

(1) Respondent will maintain his trust account consistent with the practices set forth in a document entitled "Trust Account Management: Handling Client and Third Party Funds."
(2) At Respondent's expense, Respondent's trust account will be monitored by a Certified Public Accountant, approved by the Commission, who will make detailed quarterly reports to the Commission.
(3) Respondent's probation shall be automatically revoked if there is a judicial finding that he violated the Rules of Professional Conduct or any criminal law during the term of his probation.

Notwithstanding the expiration of the term of probation set forth above, Respondent's probation shall remain in effect until it is terminated pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(17.1).
