Demolition Derby

The Indiana Supreme Court has imposed a suspension of18 months without automatic reinstatement of an attorney for incompetence, conflicts of interest and frivolous litigation in connection with the proposed condemnation and demolition of a building owned by an elderly woman.

The attorney represented the interests of a convicteed murdered referred to as JH as well as the owner. JH was employed as a "contract paralegal" by the attorney. He was also found to have concealed his relationship with JH to disciplinary authorities for two years.

The attorney has a record of prior discipline for incompetence and instituting frivolous litigation. He also made frivolous claims in the disciplinary matter. (Mike Frisch)
