No, he has not been disbarred. Nor has he been convicted of a felony. He voluntarily resigned his license before either of these things happened. Very clever. Now that the felony has been reduced to misdemeanor, there is nothing to stop him fom having his license reinstated. He was not disbarred and was not convicted of a felony. So he pays his legal dues to the ABA, takes some classes, and voila, he's a practicing attorney again. Right?
Thanks! I will check this with the Ohio Supreme Court. I will also check out the Security Fund but I think it's been too long. And this guy was my cousin! I watched him grow up. We swapped books and conpared art exhibits. What a waste. I actually feel sorry for him (not too). Thanks again. Terry
