DAVIESS COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — An attorney who at one time worked as a deputy prosecutor in Daviess County, according to court records, has had his license suspended by the Indiana Supreme Court for failing to respond to an investigation into a filed grievance.

Publicly available court records show Thomas Dysert was suspended from the Practice of Law in Indiana by the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission on August 24 due to failing to cooperate with an investigation into a grievance.

In the filing, the court said on April 26, Dysert was ordered to show cause as to why he believed he shouldn’t have his ability to practice law suspended for failing to cooperate with the previously mentioned investigation. In that notice, Dysert was given ten days to respond.

The court ended up giving Dysert more than ten days to respond, as it was not until July 7 that the Commission filed a “request for ruling and to tax costs” against Dysert since he had continued to be uncooperative. Dysert also reportedly failed to respond to that request.

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

When asked for a statement regarding the ruling, Daviess County Prosecutor Dan Murrie said he could not comment on pending situations.

Murrie also said he could not comment on Dysert’s past or current status as an employee in his office.

Court documents show that Dysert was sent certified mail on August 28 that was received by an administrative assistant at the Daviess County Prosecutor’s Office. Dysert owes a reported $524.78 in court costs and filing fees as a result of the ruling.
