A Fort Wayne attorney who has drawn 10 formal disciplinary actions in the past two years has been suspended from the practice of law for failing to cooperate with several of those investigations.
Cody R. Williams was suspended effective immediately by a Thursday order of the Indiana Supreme Court.
The order says that in investigating five disciplinary cases against Williams, he failed to file responses to show cause letters in two of them. He also failed to respond to requests for ruling and to tax costs in all five of the complaints, the order says.
In addition to the suspension, Williams is ordered to reimburse the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission $527.24 for the costs of prosecuting the proceeding.
The nature of Williams’ alleged misconduct is not disclosed in the order. The suspension order is entered in five complaints under In the Matter of: Cody R. Williams — 19S-DI-81, 19S-DI-141, 19S-DI-219, 19S-DI-220 and 19S-DI-370.
