Indiana justices discipline suspended Chicago attorney

March 31, 2017

The Indiana Supreme Court has imposed reciprocal discipline on a Chicago-based attorney who is also licensed in Indiana after she was suspended from the practice of law in Illinois.

Last January, the Illinois Supreme Court suspended Courtney O. Wylie for six months, effective Feb. 3. The same day, the Indiana Supreme Court issued an order to show cause, and Wylie filed a consent to reciprocal discipline on March 2.

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission did not file an objection or reply to the reciprocal discipline, and Justice Steve David, writing as acting chief justice, said in the Thursday order that the court had not found any reason not to impose discipline on Wiley. She was indefinitely suspended from the practice of law in Indiana retroactive to Feb. 3.

If Wylie is reinstated to practice in Illinois, she may filed a Motion for Release from Reciprocal Suspension in Indiana pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(20)(g), provided no other suspension orders are in effect against him. The costs of the proceeding are assessed against her.
