COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann can again practice law in the state, following a six-month suspension related to ethics violations.
The Ohio Supreme Court reinstated his law license on Tuesday, saying Dann substantially complied with the court's six-month order.
Dann resigned as Ohio's chief law enforcer in 2008 amid a sexual harassment scandal and later pleaded guilty to ethics violations involving campaign and transition funds.
The state's highest court had ordered a half-year suspension of his law license in November. The suspension, which ended in May, was half of the one-year term that was at one time recommended for Dann.
The court has given him credit for fulfilling his community service obligations, paying his fines and submitting character references from judges.
