Ind. Decisions - Michigan City attorney suspended for noncooperation
In In the Matter of Kimberly D. Kiner, a brief 1-page order filed Nov. 3, the Supreme Court orders that that Respondent be suspended from the practice of law for noncooperation with the Commission, effective immediately.
The ILB often does not individually mention these non-cooperation orders, as they convey little information. However, Steve Garrison of the NWI Times has a fairly detailed story today in the NWI Times on the suspension - a sample:
Kiner, 37, is under investigation because of unspecified allegations of “professional misconduct,” the order states.
Kiner denied in an interview that she acted unprofessionally, but said she was currently addressing health issues that limited her ability to participate in the investigation.
Kiner said she was diagnosed in August with Stage 3 colon cancer, which she believed was caused in part from the stress related to her job. She said she will not contest the suspension until she was in better health.
