The Illinois Administrator has filed a series of related disciplinary complaints centering on an arbitrator with the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.
The arbitrator is charged with improper conduct designed to promote her interests in her own workers' compensation claim.
Further, the charges allege that the arbitrator engaged in a series of improper ex parte contacts with counsel in matters before her.
BND.com reports that the arbitrator was suspended in February 2011.
The ABA Journal had this coverage of the charges against one of the attorneys. (Mike Frisch)
