Supreme Court lifts another suspension against Fort Wayne attorney

A Fort Wayne attorney facing multiple disciplinary actions has had his suspension in one of those actions terminated, though he remains ineligible to practice law in Indiana.

The Indiana Supreme Court published an order Thursday terminating the noncooperation suspension against Cody R. Williams in In the Matter of: Cody R. Williams, 19S-DI-219. The order says Williams was suspended for not cooperating with the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission’s investigation of a grievance against him, though the order does not specify the nature of the grievance.

On Wednesday, commission executive director G. Michael Witte filed a certification of compliance, the order says, leading the court to lift the suspension in this case only under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(c)(3).

But Williams still is not reinstated to the practice of law in Indiana. The Indiana Roll of Attorneys shows two disciplinary actions pending against him, while 10 other actions, including the suspension terminated this week, have been concluded.

In October, three other noncooperation suspensions against Williams were lifted, as was a fourth in August.

All five noncooperation suspensions that have since been lifted were imposed in July.
