IN RE: Ashley K. EVE, Respondent
Published Order Imposing Reciprocal Discipline
The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission filed a “Notice of Foreign Discipline and Petition for Issuance of an Order to Show Cause,” advising that Respondent was disciplined by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana and requesting, pursuant to Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 23(20), that reciprocal discipline be imposed in this state. On March 21, 2022, this Court issued an “Order to Show Cause”; and on March 23, Respondent filed a response acquiescing to the imposition of reciprocal discipline.
Respondent was admitted to practice law in the state of Indiana and in the Southern District of Indiana. On February 4, 2022, the District Court found Respondent's conduct violated the Southern District's disciplinary rules. Specifically, Respondent was convicted in Hamilton Superior Court of resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor, in violation of Southern District of Indiana Local Rule of Disciplinary Enforcement 6(a). For this violation, Respondent was suspended from the practice of law in the Southern District of Indiana indefinitely.
The Court finds that there has been no showing, pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(20)(e), of any reason why reciprocal discipline should not be issued in this state.
Being duly advised, the Court orders Respondent suspended indefinitely from the practice of law in this state as of the date of this order. Respondent is ordered to fulfill the duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26). The costs of this proceeding are assessed against Respondent.
If Respondent is reinstated to practice in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Respondent may file a “Motion for Release from Reciprocal Suspension” pursuant to and in full compliance with Admission and Discipline Rule 23(20)(g), provided there is no other suspension order in effect at the time.
All Justices concur.
