Top court to hear arguments on Dann law license suspension
COLUMBUS — The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments April 3 on a recommended six-month suspension of ex-Attorney General Marc Dann’s law license.
A decision on cases such as these usually come three to six months after a hearing in front of the justices, said Bret Crow, a court spokesman.
The court’s 28-member board of commissioners on grievances and discipline recommended the six-month suspension. The justices have the final decision on Dann’s law-license suspension. They can accept, reject or increase the recommended punishment.
Dann, a Democrat formerly of Liberty, was found guilty in May 2010 of two misdemeanor-ethics violations, making him subject to sanctions from the state Supreme Court.
Dann resigned as attorney general in May 2008, about 16 months into a four-year term, after a critical internal-office investigation determined he ran an unprofessional operation filled with cronyism.
