More than twice as many Indiana practicing attorneys were suspended this year for not paying their registration fees, compared to 2006.

Those 133 attorneys were suspended this week from the practice of law - on top of 111 colleagues also suspended this week for not meeting continuing legal education requirements.

A set of two orders came from the Indiana Supreme Court on Tuesday, though the registration fee suspension order wasn't immediately available from the courts. It was posted online late Thursday. The orders come as an annual, routine task this time of year by the state's highest court. Both take effect June 12.

Overall, out-of-state attorneys comprised the bulk of each list - 52 were suspended for unpaid registration fees, while 41 non-Indiana based attorneys were suspended for not meeting education rules.

This year's suspensions are much higher than those in 2006, when 97 attorneys were suspended for not meeting CLE requirements and 65 were suspended for nonpayment of attorney fees, according those previous orders.

The registration fee order In the Matter of the Nonpayment of Attorney Registration Fees lists attorneys suspended for not complying with Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 2.

That same day, justices issued an order In the Matter of Failure to Comply with Continuing Legal Education Requirements that listed the 111 for not meeting requirements of Admission and Discipline Rule 29, Sections 3 or 10.

Any attorney listed can be reinstated by complying with the reinstatement procedures and paying any necessary penalties.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
