Collective Responsibility

The web page of the Ohio Supreme Court has an announcement of payments in excess of $225,000 to victims of lawyer misconduct from the Clients' Security Fund of Ohio ("CSF"). The court assures the public that these payments are a result of the misconduct of a few bad apples:

"The CSF was created in 1985 by the Supreme Court of Ohio to reimburse victims of attorney theft, embezzlement or misappropriation. The CSF is not taxpayer funded, but funded entirely by registration fees paid by every Ohio attorney. Ohio has more than 35,000 attorneys engaged in the active practice of law. Less than one tenth of one percent of those attorneys is involved in CSF claims." (Mike Frisch)
