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)
