Attorney’s noncooperation suspension lifted but second suspension remains

The Indiana Supreme Court has terminated a noncooperation suspension for a southwestern Indiana attorney, but the lawyer still can’t practice due to a separate pending disciplinary action against him.

Haubstadt lawyer Daniel J. Hancock’s suspension in cause number 22S-DI-31 was terminated in a July 25 order.

In May, the Supreme Court suspended Hancock after finding he had not responded to a show cause order. He was ordered to pay $529.72 for the proceeding.

On July 15, the executive director of the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission filed a “Certification of Compliance” stating Hancock had cooperated with its investigation. Pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(c)(3) the May suspension was terminated as of the date the certificate was filed.

But a separate disciplinary case, 22S-DI-133, will keep Hancock from practicing, as the terminated suspension was only for cause number 22S-DI-31, the July 25 order states.

According to court records, a hearing in the pending disciplinary case is scheduled for Aug. 24.
