Four Marion County residents have filed suit to officially remove Curtis Hill from office as Attorney General.
The complaint filed in Marion County Court argues that because Hill’s law license has been suspended for 30 days, he is no longer “duly licensed” to practice law and that creates a vacancy, which the statute gives Governor Holcomb the ability to fill.
Holcomb had asked the Supreme Court to offer an opinion, but it turned him down.
Hill was suspended for groping several women in a bar two years ago. He was suspended for 30 days, however, his license to practice was automatically reinstated at the end of the suspension.
Prior to stepping down, he made his chief counsel Aaron Negangard, acting Attorney General, which the plaintiffs in the suit said he did not have the authority to do so.
