The Indiana Supreme Court has denied a request by Governor Eric Holcomb to determine whether Curtis Hill can remain Attorney General.
In the one-page summary, the Court held these issues, whether Hill was “duly licensed” to practice law and whether that creates a vacancy in the Office of Attorney General under the Indiana Constitution and statute were not litigated by the parties and are extraneous to our disciplinary opinion, making intervention inappropriate.
In addition, the Court ruled it should not offer up advisory opinions.
Hill was suspended for 30 days following a finding that he groped four women in a bar back in March of 2018. However, the court found he was to be automatically reinstated when done.
This means, at least for now, Hill is likely to return to the office once his suspension expires in 30 days.
