Failure To Supervise Incarcerated Legal Assistant

The Indiana Supreme Court has imposed a private reprimand (the case is styled "In re Anonymous") in a matter in which the attorney had hired a legal assistant "whose incarceration made it impossible for [the attorney] to ensure that the assistant's conduct was compatible with [the attorney's] professional obligations to his client."

The court indicated that a more severe sanction might well have been appropriate absent the attorney's consent to the discipline. (Mike Frisch)
