COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Disgraced former Attorney General Marc Dann is preparing to argue his first case before the Ohio Supreme Court since he was forced from office amid a sexual harassment scandal, convicted of an ethics violation and temporarily stripped of his law license.

The Youngstown-area Democrat appears before the court Wednesday. He is representing a homeowner sued for foreclosure by Bank of America.

It's the type of case Dann relished during his brief tenure as Ohio's top lawyer. He resigned under pressure in May 2008 after a spectacular showdown with the state Democratic party, governor and Legislature over his misdeeds.

Dann told The Associated Press in an email that he continues to pursue foreclosure, consumer protection and banking cases in his private practice. He said such issues shouldn't get waylaid by politics.
