Cleveland attorney’s petition for retirement or resignation accepted by Ohio Supreme Court amid pending disciplinary action

On Wednesday, January 18, 2023, the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled on the Application for Retirement or Resignation of Cleveland attorney James I. Corcoran, case no. 2022-1531.

On June 2022, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge sentenced Corcoran to six months prison term, however, Corcoran was allowed to remain free on bond while he appeals his conviction with attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor, importuning, and possessing criminal tools.

Corcoran sought to resign his law license by filing the instant application for retirement or resignation before the Court. The application was referred to the disciplinary counsel who thereafter submitted a report, under seal, to the Office of Attorney Services. Said report was filed before the Court on December 13, 2022.

Accordingly, the Court ruled in favor of Corcoran and ordered that, pursuant to Gov. Bar. R. VI (11) (C), Corcoran’s resignation as an attorney and counselor at law is accepted as a resignation with disciplinary action pending.

Prior to the disbarment, Mr. James I. Corcoran was an art appraiser in Cleveland, Ohio. He attended Harvard University Law School. He had been licensed in Ohio. His info can be found on Avvo.com.
