A Cleveland-area attorney received a six-month suspension for alleging that state judges make decisions based on ”politics and not law” and for making other false statements about their integrity.

John Alex Morton was suspended from practicing law for one year, with six months stayed on the condition that he commit no further misconduct, after he “voiced undignified and discourteous statements about judges and justices who did nothing more than rule contrary to his client’s position,” according to a divided Ohio Supreme Court’s per curiam opinion filed Tuesday.
