Ind. Gov't. - Bill would provide reimbursement from the state for reasonable attorney's fees incurred in defending against a charge of attorney misconduct

SB 507, which was passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee Feb. 12 and reassigned to Appropriations, has the following digest:

Attorney and judicial discipline complaints. Permits a prosecuting attorney and a county public defender to seek reimbursement from the state for reasonable attorney's fees incurred in defending against a charge of attorney misconduct if: (1) the alleged misconduct relates to the person's official duties or status as a prosecuting attorney or public defender; (2) the charge of misconduct does not result in a sanction (except for a private reprimand); and (3) the attorney general approves the reimbursement.
