The Ohio Supreme Court agreed with a disciplinary panel’s recommendation Sept. 8 that the license of a veteran attorney convicted of workers’ compensation fraud should be suspended for two years, with no credit for the time served under his December 2019 interim suspension.

The attorney, Robert E. Fitz, of Westlake, Ohio, had argued that, while he should be suspended for two years based on his felony conviction, he should also receive credit for the time he served under his nearly three-year interim suspension, according to the state high court’s per curiam opinion.
