Off The Rails

The Indiana Supreme Court has ordered a suspension of 60 days of an attorney who engaged in the following conduct

After a hearing in a divorce case, Respondent grabbed his client by the arms, pushing him against a rail in the courtroom in a manner that caused the client to be bent backward over the rail. Respondent was charged with battery and entered a pre-trial diversion agreement with the prosecutor.

The court consisdered his lack of prior discipline in mitigation. (Mike Frisch)
