Former Ohio AG Dann Has Law License Suspended


UPDATED: Tuesday November 20, 2012 10:29 AM

The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered a six-month law license suspension for former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.
   
The ruling Tuesday means Dann can't work as an attorney during the suspension, a punishment connected to his 2008 resignation amid a sexual harassment scandal.
   
Dann, a Democrat, also pleaded guilty in 2010 to improperly paying two aides from political and office accounts and failing to disclose campaign expenses.
   
The state Disciplinary Counsel had asked for a year-long suspension. It said Dann tarnished the reputation of the office and noted that no other Ohio attorney general has ever been subject to discipline.
   
Dann had argued for a six-month suspension that would have allowed him to keep working as a lawyer.
