The Ohio Supreme Court has disciplined an attorney from Ashland for several professional conduct violations, including showing up to court drunk. The state’s high court on Thursday handed down a two-year suspension, with 18 months stayed, for attorney Brian Halligan, who had to be removed from the courtroom in January of 2017 because he was intoxicated during a trial. In order to be reinstated Halligan will need to take part in an alcohol assessment program and complete court-ordered probation.
