Indiana Supreme Court justices indefinitely suspended an Indianapolis attorney who was twice suspended earlier this year for his noncooperation with the disciplinary commission’s investigations of grievances against him.
The high court indefinitely suspended Steven T. Fulk of Indianapolis on Tuesday, effective immediately, on finding that more than three months had passed since his was suspended for noncooperation in the disciplinary process.
In June, the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission suspended Fulk for failing to cooperate with an investigation of a grievance against him. The nature of that grievance was not disclosed. He was again suspended from the practice of law in August under a separate cause.
Fulk failed to respond to the commission’s motion to convert his current suspension, prompting the Supreme Court to convert it to an indefinite suspension in a Tuesday order.
He is ordered to fulfill the continuing duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26). To be readmitted to the practice of law in Indiana, Fulk must cure the causes for of all his suspensions in effect and successfully petition for reinstatement before the high court.
All justices concurred in In the Matter of: Steven T. Fulk, 19S-DI-227.
