On Tuesday, November 15, 2022, the Indiana Supreme Court ordered the suspension of Respondent Angola attorney Amanda R. German for noncooperation with the Commission.

The case is styled as “In the Matter of Amanda R. German’ and was brought by the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission under case no. 22S-DI-312.

The following are as alleged and summarized from the filing:

By an Order dated September 7, 2022, German was ordered to show cause why she should not be immediately suspended from the practice of law in the state of Indiana for her failure to cooperate with the Commission’s investigation of a grievance filed against her. German has not submitted a response to the Court’s order to show cause. The Commission filed a Request for Ruling and to Tax Costs asserting that German still has not cooperated.

The Indiana Supreme Court decided against the respondent as a result of these actions.

The Disposition reads:

“Being duly advised, the Court ORDERS that Respondent be suspended from the practice of law for noncooperation with the Commission, effective immediately. Pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23(10.1)(c)(3), this suspension shall continue until the Executive Director of the Disciplinary Commission certifies to the Court that Respondent has cooperated fully with the investigation or until further order of this Court, provided there are no other suspensions then in effect.”

Costs were assessed against Respondent in the amount of $523.46.

Prior to the suspension, Ms. Amanda Renea German is a practicing lawyer serving Angola, Indiana. She has been licensed in Indiana. Her online bio can be found on Avvo.
