Indianapolis lawyer suspended for noncooperation

The Indiana Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended an Indianapolis lawyer who failed to comply with a disciplinary investigation against her.

Mary Kay Fleming was suspended in a Monday order, effective immediately.

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 Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission in its investigation of a grievance against her. The high court’s order does not specify the nature of that grievance.

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

“Pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(c)(3), this suspension shall continue until the Executive Director of the Disciplinary Commission certifies to the Court that Respondent has cooperated fully with the investigation or until further order of this Court, provided there are no other suspensions then in effect. Respondent is ordered to fulfill the duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26),” according to the order.

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

All justices concurred.
