The state Supreme Court has suspended a northern Indiana lawyer from practicing law and ruled the woman, who is also a part-time judge, permanently barred her from judicial service for having an inappropriate relationship with a client.
The Indianapolis Star reports the Supreme Court took the action against Logansport attorney Lisa Traylor-Wolff earlier this month. The order says Traylor-Wolff's law license should be suspended for one year, but could be reinstated after 45 days if she complies with a treatment plan, has no contact with that client and doesn't commit any other violations of the rules of professional conduct.
The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications accused Traylor-Wolff in February of engaging in "sexual relations" with a client.
Traylor-Wolf worked as a senior judge in Pulaski and Fulton counties.
