A Louisville attorney has been suspended from the practice of law in Indiana for noncooperation with a disciplinary investigation.
Kentucky attorney Kenneth L. Sales was suspended effective immediately on Friday.
In June 2020, the Indiana high court ordered Sales to show cause why he should not be immediately suspended from the practice of law for failure to cooperate with the Disciplinary Commission’s investigation of a grievance filed against him. Sales did not submit a response to the court’s order to show cause within 10 days, nor did he respond to the commission’s subsequent filing of a Request for Ruling and to Tax Costs.
Sales’ suspension will remain in effect until the commission certifies that he has cooperated fully with the investigation, or until further order the court, provided there are no other suspensions in effect. Currently, Sales is also under suspension for continuing legal education noncompliance.
“Respondent is ordered to fulfill the continuing duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26). It is further ordered, pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(d), that Respondent reimburse the Disciplinary Commission $527.80 for the costs of prosecuting this proceeding,” Chief Justice Loretta Rush wrote for the Supreme Court.
The case is In the Matter of: Kenneth L. Sales, 20S-DI-395.
