The Illinois Supreme Court imposed suspensions of 30 and 60 days in a matter involving findings of sexual misconduct against two big law associates who engaged in the misconduct while on a Wisconsin trip to the summer home of the family of one of the attorneys. The attorneys met a woman at a tavern after a day of drinking. The violations took place on a stop en route to the summer home. The coverage of the case from Abovethelaw is linked here.
The suspensions were in line with the sanctions proposed by the Hearing Board. Both attorneys had entered pleas to criminal charges arising out of the misconduct.
