Supreme Court suspends local attorney

The Ohio Supreme Court on Monday indefinitely suspended the license of Dayton attorney Shawn Patrick Hooks.

The Dayton Bar Association brought a disciplinary complaint against Hooks in 2013 for failing to diligently represent his clients and keep them informed about their case. In June 2014, the supreme court imposed a six month license suspension, but stayed if Hooks paid $1,400 in disciplinary board costs. In November 2014, the court revoked that stay.

Hooks was admitted to the Ohio bar in 2005. His law degree is from the University of Dayton.
