Attorney Refunds Fees After Sex With Client

The Indiana Supreme Court has imposed a 30-day suspension of an attorney  who had a sexual relationship with a client who he represented in a dissolution matter. After the sexual relationship began, the attorney refunded the fees paid by the client but continued to represent her for about two months. The court then granted his motion to withdraw his appearence. The client and her spouse reconciled and dismissed the dissolution action.

The attorney will be automatically reinstated after the suspension. He has no prior discipline and a history of pro bono and community service. (Mike Frisch)
