Ohio Supreme Court Approves New Rules for Attorney Email Information, Suspensions
The Ohio Supreme Court has approved amendments to its attorney registration rules, including a new registration status for attorneys whose law licenses are suspended.
The amendments to Rule VI of the Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio that will take effect on Dec. 1, 2015, provide that the registration status of an attorney who is suspended from the practice of law be designated as “suspended.” The designation would be lifted when the attorney is reinstated to the practice of law.
New language also clarifies that “offices of the Supreme Court may use e-mail addresses maintained by the Office of Attorney Services to advise attorneys of matters related to the practice of law.” An attorney’s home phone number, home address (if a valid office address is provided), and Social Security number will remain exempt from public record.
