Ind. Courts - "Three more pending cases against Anderson lawyer Stephen Schuyler"

The ILB had an earlier post on Jan. 19, quoting a story in the Anderson Herald Bulletin by Ken de la Bastide. Today the same reporter has a second story, that begins:

ANDERSON – The Indiana State Disciplinary Commission has three pending orders to show cause against suspended Anderson lawyer Stephen Schuyler from practicing law.

Schuyler, 62, is facing a total of 13 felony counts involving four estates.

Steve Koester, chief deputy prosecutor, said Indiana State Police investigators are continuing to work on two other cases.

All five justices on the Indiana Supreme Court concurred with the request of the Disciplinary Commission for Schuyler’s suspension for noncooperation with the commission in the investigation of one of the four complaints. [ILB: here is the Oct. 7, 2015 order]

The suspension will continue until the executive director of the Disciplinary Commission certifies to the Supreme Court that Schuyler has cooperating with the investigation; the investigation or disciplinary proceeds are completed and until further order of the court, provided no other suspensions are in effect.

The order issued Wednesday requires Schuyler to reimburse the Disciplinary Commission nearly $1,600 for the costs of prosecuting the proceeding.

Schuyler has repeatedly failed to respond to the commission's letters asking for him to show why his license should not be suspended.
