An Ohio lawyer has been suspended for his over-the-top criticisms of litigation opponents and judicial decisions, including an assertion that a custody order was “the most absolutely insane decision” that he had encountered in almost 40 years.
The Ohio Supreme Court suspended the lawyer, in an Oct. 6 opinion. The lawyer was suspended from law practice for two years with the final six months conditionally stayed. He cannot be reinstated to law practice unless he submits to an evaluation by the Ohio Lawyers Assistance Program and complies with the recommendations.
