Disciplinary charges against Frank Fina stemming from his handling of the investigation into three former Penn State administrators should be dismissed, a hearing committee has recommended.

The three-lawyer committee, which presided over the disciplinary proceedings against Fina this summer, issued its report and recommendations last week. The 17-page report found that the Office of Disciplinary Counsel failed to make the case that Fina broke a disciplinary rule prohibiting attorneys from subpoenaing other lawyers to testify about their clients.
