Ind. Courts - "Valpo lawyer accused of stealing from clients gives up law license"

Updating this Feb. 15th ILB post, which was headed "Valpo attorney charged in theft of $1.64 million," Valparaiso attorney Clark Holesinger has now resigned from the Indiana bar. Here is the Court's order, filed March 12th, accepting his resignation. From the order:

Respondent has tendered to this Court an affidavit of resignation from the bar of this State, pursuant to Indiana Admission and Discipline 23(17), which requires an acknowledgement that there is presently pending an investigation into or a proceeding involving allegations of misconduct and that Respondent could not successfully defend himself if prosecuted. * * *

Acceptance of Respondent's resignation from the bar serves only to remove Respondent from the practice of law and does not relieve Respondent from any liability he might have for his/her misconduct under civil or criminal law.

Dan Carden of the NWI Times has a story today on the resignation.
