Two northern Indiana lawyers have been indefinitely suspended from practicing law in Indiana.
The Indiana Supreme Court this month handed down an interim suspension against Cody R. Williams and converted Michael P. Rehak’s suspension for noncooperation to an indefinite suspension.
Williams, of Fort Wayne, was suspended after he was convicted of possession of a legend drug, a Level 6 felony entered as a Class A misdemeanor. He was sentenced in Huntington Superior Court to a suspended term of 365 days plus fines and costs. Online court records indicate he participated in a veterans treatment court program.
Williams was already under suspensions handed down in May 2020 and July 2020. His interim suspension handed down this month in In the Matter of: Cody R. Williams, 21S-DI-275, will continue until further order of the court or final resolution of any resulting disciplinary action, provided no other suspension is in effect.
Rehak, of South Bend, was initially suspended in February for failing to cooperate with an Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission investigation into a grievance against him.
More than 90 days have passed, and the commission moved to convert Rehak’s suspension to an indefinite suspension. Rehak did not respond to the commission’s motion.
To be readmitted, Rehak 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 Supreme Court wrote in In the Matter of Michael P. Rehak, 20S-DI-641.
