The Indiana Supreme Court approved an agreement for discipline of an attorney for repeated neglect, failure to communicate with clients, failure to cooperate with the bar investigation, failure to retirn unearned fees, and filing inadequate appellate briefs. The court imposed a suspension of at least six months without automatic reinstatement.
One instance of misconduct merits attention: "When one client told a judge in court that he had fired Respondent, Respondent told him to shut up and pushed him down in his chair, and then falsely denied that he had pushed his client to the [Disciplinary] Commission." (Mike Frisch)
