Ten Cases Certified to Disciplinary Board

The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct today announced the certification of 10 cases from June and July for formal disciplinary proceedings.

The certified complaint has been sent to the respondent, and the respondent has been directed to file an answer to the allegations contained in the complaint. Once an answer is received, the case will be assigned to a three-member hearing panel of the Board, and the hearing panel will conduct further proceedings. If the respondent does not answer the allegations, the respondent’s failure to answer will be certified to the Ohio Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court may suspend the respondent’s license to practice law.

Typically, a public hearing is scheduled within four to six months after the case is assigned to a hearing panel. Please consult the hearing schedule on the Board’s web site for a monthly list of Board hearings.

If the Board finds that a lawyer or judge has engaged in professional misconduct, the Board will file a report with the Court that includes a recommended sanction. The Court is responsible for reviewing the Board report and case record and imposing discipline.
