Columbus Bar Association v. John. J. Okuley, Case No. 2017-1417
Franklin County [Disciplinary cases]
The Board of Professional Conduct is recommending that Columbus John J. Okuley be suspended for two years, with one year stayed, based on the lawyer's criminal conviction that stemmed from a physical confrontation with a bicyclist and physician, who witnessed the bike accident.
The board concluded that Okuley violated several rules governing the conduct of Ohio attorneys for his behavior during what the board labeled "the bicycle incident," and Okuley's subsequent behavior when the Columbus Bar Association investigated the matter.
