Like A Firehorse That Hears An Alarm

An attorney who represented a client while suspended was held in contempt and fined $500 by the Indiana Supreme Court.

The attorney explained that he attended a court proceeding with a former client with the intent to be a witness but "reverted back to this [sic] attorney ways" and acted as a lawyer in the proceeding.

The court indicted that the conduct will be considered in connection with any future disciplinary action or attempt to obtain reinstatement.

A dissent would lock him up for five days in addition to the fine. (Mike Frisch)
