Indiana Lawyer Disciplinary Actions

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission brings charges against attorneys who have violated the state’s rules for admission to the bar and Rules of Professional Conduct. The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications brings charges against judges, judicial officers, or judicial candidates for misconduct. Details of attorneys’ and judges’ actions for which they are being disciplined by the Supreme Court will be included unless they are not a matter of public record under the court’s rules.

Termination of Suspension
Steven R. Lloyd of Hamilton County has had his suspension from the practice of law for failure to cooperate with the Disciplinary Commission terminated in a Supreme Court order filed June 1, 2011. On May 31, the executive secretary of the Disciplinary Commission filed a Certificate of Compliance stating that Lloyd had fully cooperated with its investigation. Lloyd’s suspension terminated May 31.

Suspension
The Indiana Supreme Court has suspended 210 attorneys for noncompliance with continuing legal education requirements and/or nonpayment of attorney registration fees. In a Supreme Court order filed May 26 and posted on the court website in mid-June, in- and out-of-state attorneys who failed to take the necessary steps mandated by the Indiana Admission and Discipline Rules to keep an active license were listed. The suspensions went into effect when the order was issued for purposes of the reinstatement procedures that must be followed or reinstatement fees that must be paid. The prohibition against practicing law took effect June 20.

Daniel E. Serban of Huntington County has resigned from the Indiana bar. The Supreme Court accepted Serban’s resignation, effective immediately, in an order filed June 3, 2011. Serban is ineligible to petition for reinstatement for five years.•
