The Ohio Supreme Court has suspended an attorney for one year with six months stated on conditions.
The attorney joined a Toledo law firm as a full-time hourly employee in 2000. He became a nonequity partner in 2007 until his termination in 2009.
The attorney was a debtor in a Wisconsin judgment. He filed an answer to a garnishment notice delivered to the law firm as a firm partner. On behalf of the firm, he denied that the firm held property subject to garnishment. He reiterated the false denial in response to a second notice. He also lied in a bankruptcy proceeding.
