Rules For Suspended Lawyers Proposed

The Ohio Supreme Court has proposed new rules that would govern the conduct of suspended and disqualified lawyers. The court's web page summarizes the proposed rule:

"[the rule] would prohibit a disqualified or suspended attorney from direct client contact or handling client funds. In addition, a client must be notified in writing if a disqualified or suspended attorney assists another attorney on a client’s case."

The above link leads to a link to the text of the proposed new rule. Comments are due on or before May 13. (Mike Frisch)
