INDIANAPOLIS — Lawyers have made their final written arguments in the ethics case against Indiana’s attorney general, who is accused of groping women at a bar in 2018.

A watchdog, the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission, is recommending a two-year suspension of Curtis Hill’s law license. That could put his career in jeopardy.

Hill denies that he groped the women.

A former Indiana Supreme Court Justice is serving as the hearing officer and will file a report with the Supreme Court. The court will have the final say on any sanction.
