On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the Supreme Court of Ohio ordered the reinstatement from suspension of Ravenna attorney Michael Allen Noble.

The case is styled Disciplinary Counsel v. Noble with case no. 2021-1519.

On June 29, 2022, the Court suspended Noble from the practice of law for a period of one year with six months stayed on conditions as recommended by the Board of Professional Conduct upon the latter’s findings of misconduct.

Noble’s June 29, 2022 suspension stemmed from a complaint filed by the Disciplinary Counsel alleging that Noble had violated the Rules of Professional Conduct by engaging in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a client and making false statements to a law enforcement officer, opposing counsel, and a tribunal.

The Court, having found that Noble has complied with the Order and with the provisions of Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio V(24), ruled in favor of Noble and granted his petition for reinstatement.
