No Account

The Indiana Supreme Court has suspended an attorney for six months with all but sixty days stayed on conditions in a case where the attorney used his trust account for personal and client-related expenses after the IRS placed a levy on his personal account.

This sort of operation usually goes badly for the attorney.

Here, he paid for a program of the Commission for Continuing Legal Education with a trust check. The Commission, in turn, notified Disciplinary Counsel. The attorney also bounced a trust check due to a mistaken belief he have sufficient personal funds and made the check good on the following day. (Mike Frisch)
