Indiana Supreme Court justices have indefinitely suspended an Indianapolis lawyer who was suspended earlier this year for failing to cooperate with the disciplinary commission concerning a grievance against her.

Mary Kay Fleming, of Fleming Stage LLC, was ordered on Jan. 28 to show cause as to why she should not be suspended for failing to cooperate with the commission.  Fleming, who was admitted to practice in 1990, also was ordered to reimburse the commission $530.50 for the costs of prosecuting the case, In the Matter of: Mary Kay Fleming, 21S-DI-33.

Fleming did not respond to the show cause order, nor did she respond to a request for ruling and to tax costs.

The Supreme Court suspended Fleming on April  19 for failing to comply with the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission.

In the order issued Friday, justices said more than 90 days have passed since Fleming was suspended due to noncooperation with the disciplinary process and the “suspension should be converted to an indefinite suspension from the practice of law pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(c)(4).”

To be readmitted to the practice of law in Indiana, Fleming “must cure the causes of all suspensions in effect and successfully petition this court for reinstatement pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(18)(b).”

The case is Fleming’s only disciplinary action, according to the Indiana Roll of Attorneys.
