COLUMBUS — Mount Vernon attorney Scott Pullins defended his actions on Tuesday in front of the Ohio State Supreme Court in hopes disciplinary sanctions less extreme than the indefinite suspension recommended by the disciplinary board could be applied to his seven-counts of professional misconduct case.

    Abusing his position by issuing numerous subpoenas for his own behalf, and criticizing the court are both acts that speaks poorly for an officer of the court. Both counts should be delt with accordingly, with at least a strong suspension to make sure he understands the seriousness of his actions. At this point I don’t believe he appreciates or understands how he abused his position or mocked the court.

    There has been much worse conduct by attorneys (including judges) who have received sanctions ranging from public reprimands to term suspensions.

    I believe an indefinite suspension is overely severe in this case, and I HAVE read the original complaint by the Board + the briefs.
