Law Grad Enjoined From Applying For Admission

The Ohio Supreme Court issued an opinion today that enjoins an unlicensed law school graduate from practicing law and forbids his application for bar admission. He had graduated in 1999 but never passed the bar in Ohio or elsewhere. He accepted employment at a law firm after lying to the firm about his status and providing fictitous attorney registration numbers. The firm discovered the deception and fired him after he had performed a variety of legal services for clients. The court concludes: "Respondent is accountable for a $1,000 civil penalty and has agreed never to reapply to the Ohio bar. Our order enjoining the filing of such an application will ensure that he does not." (Mike Frisch)
