Attorney Marion Cox of Shaker Heights, OH; ethical leprechaun

 
The state of state of Ohio presented Marion Neal Cox with a law license in 1972 after he graduated from the University of Michigan Law School.
 
Disciplinary Counsel of the Ohio Supreme Court found Marion guilty of the following misconduct.
 
Joel represented a shopping center seeking a tenant for a vacant Laundromat at the same time he recommended the Laundromat to a disabled longtime client as a business opportunity. Joel then drew up incorporation papers and served as statutory agent for the business the client formed in order to operate the Laundromat.
 
Apparently, the University of Michigan Law School hadn’t yet adopted a class dealing with “conflicts of interest” when Joel was there.
 
Joel also intentionally prejudiced or damaged his client during the course of his representation, which was based on Joel’s subsequent involvement in a civil lawsuit against the tenant on behalf of the landlord. Because the disabled client had been required to place his personal assets at risk in the least agreement prepared by Joel, the landlord gained a judgment against him for more than $38,000 and placed a lien on his home. The tenant was later forced into bankruptcy.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Ohio Supreme Court punished Marion by gifting him with a complimentary 180-day suspension of his law license.
 
As we speak (ca. March 2013) Marion practices with Newman & Newman at 18606 Parkland Drive in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
