Board of Professional Conduct Files Disciplinary Case Reports and Recommendations

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct today announced it has filed the following reports and recommendations for disciplinary cases involving attorneys and judges charged with professional misconduct with the Ohio Supreme Court.

Except in consent-to-discipline cases, the parties will have an opportunity to file objections to the board’s report and recommendation with the Supreme Court. If objections are filed, the case will be scheduled for oral argument. Oral argument is not scheduled in reinstatement cases, except upon order of the Court. In cases in which the board recommends acceptance of a consent-to-discipline agreement, no objections are permitted, and the case is submitted to the Court for consideration.

Additional information about each case, including the report and recommendation, may be obtained by clicking on the hyperlink for each case. Questions regarding pending cases should be directed to the Office of Public Information at 614.387.9250.
