No Injunction

The Indiana Supreme Court refused to enjoin the activities of an Ohio attorney retained to provide post-conviction relief to a defendant convicted of murder in Indiana.

The court rejected the contention that the attorney's travel to Indiana to interview and collect witness affidavits consituted the unauthorized practice of law.

The attorney was suspended in Ohio during the course of the representation. 

The court here found that there was insufficient evidence that temporary admission would have been denied to the attorney because there was a pending disciplinary case in Ohio. There were no acts of unauthorized practice after the Ohio suspension order.

Injunction denied. (Mike Frisch)
