Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court suspends Carl Brizzi for 30 days

In In the Matter of: Carl J. Brizzi, a 2-page, 4-0 disciplinary order (J. Massa recused) file-stamped yesterday at 4:27 pm, Chief Justice Rush writes:

The hearing officer recommended that Respondent receive a 30-day suspension, and the parties have not filed briefs urging a different result. We concur with the hearing officer’s recommendation. Accordingly, for Respondent’s professional misconduct, the Court suspends Respondent from the practice of law for a period of 30 days, beginning May 1, 2017.
As CJ Rush notes in the order: "Respondent has prior discipline for unrelated misconduct that also involved his professional duties as Marion County Prosecutor. Matter of Brizzi, 962 N.E.2d 1240 (Ind. 2012)." Here is the prior 2012 order, which involved a public reprimand, no suspension.

Here are earlier ILB posts on Mr. Brizzi.
