Disciplinary Counsel v. Raymond T. Lee III, Case No. 2014-1744
In late 2014, the Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline recommended that attorney Raymond T. Lee III of Dublin, Ohio, be indefinitely suspended from practicing law in the state. (The state attorney disciplinary board is now called the Board of Professional Conduct.)
The board found that Lee had established an attorney-client relationship with a teacher who had been a member of a union for which Lee handled disciplinary and other legal matters. As the teacher's attorney, Lee didn't act on her behalf and failed to communicate with her, the board determined. The board also concluded that Lee wasn't cooperative in the disciplinary proceedings, according to its report to the Ohio Supreme Court.
Lee has been suspended four times for failing to register with the Ohio Supreme Court. In December 2010, he was suspended from practicing law because he didn't complete his continuing education requirements, and he has not been reinstated.
