Ind. Courts - The Roll of Attorneys, and the former Clerk of the Appellate Courts
On June 3rd the ILB posted "Court posts 21-page annual list of attorneys who have failed to comply with certain requirements," linking to this year's "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 Certifications."
A few days later, Indiana Legislative Insight wrote about this year's list:
More than 25 years ago, we were first to publicly report on the list, and you may be surprised to see at least one of the names from our first report show up on this current list. The 2016 suspension list includes a former Indiana attorney general, a former state director for a presidential candidate, a former U.S. Attorney, a former state legislator from a neighboring state, a general counsel for a state-supported university, and a former president of the city council from one of the state’s three largest cities.Which brings up a couple of caveats:
- Claiming not to have gotten notice because something went to the wrong address is no defense; you are affirmatively required to report address change to the Clerk, and you can offer additional/alternative addresses and emails for notice.
- If you retire, or die, be sure to notify the Clerk of the Appellate Courts. Otherwise, you may find yourself listed on the Roll of Attorneys as "Suspended." (see this 2010 ILB post).
The ILB has received emails several times over the years about esteemed deceased attorneys included on the annual list of suspended attorneys.
