Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The hearing officer in the disciplinary hearing of Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is recommending a 60-day suspension of his law license without an automatic reinstatement.

This is all in relation to allegations that Hill inappropriately touched four women during a legislative party in 2018.

A Special Prosecutor declined to file criminal charges, but the disciplinary commission launched its own hearing.

In court documents filed today, Hearing Officer Myra Selby concluded Hill’s conduct was “offensive, invasive and damaging” to the women named in the complaint.

She added that Hill used his state office staff and others to engage in a public campaign to intimidate the complainants.

Hearing Officer Selby was appointed by the Indiana Supreme Court in the complaint against Hill. Selby filed the report including the recommendation with the Appellate Clerk’s Office on Friday.

This is not the last step in the process, as Hill now has up to 30 days to file a petition to review the case.

Court documents said the Indiana Supreme Court will consider the matter based on the hearing officer report and the related record.

It is ultimately up to the court to determine what disciplinary action, if any, will be taken.
