The Ohio Supreme Court has imposed a public reprimand of an attorney who violated a rule that requires an attorney to give clients written notice that the attorney does not have malpractice insurance.
The attorney was already on probation for other misconduct. The Akron Bar Association discovered the insurance disclosure issue while investigating the violations that led the court to order a two-year probation.
The court considered favorable character testimony in determining that the probation should continue. (Mike Frisch)
