Turns out, a lot of our pre-law students were right, in that the revelation of player misconduct by lawyer Christopher Cicero in an email to Jim Tressel may have constituted professional misconduct by an attorney in the state of Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court's Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline are recommending Cicero be suspended from practicing law for 6 months, and pay $2800 in court fees, since he revealed information obtained in an interview of a client or prospective client.
Maybe apologists aren't necessarily vindicated. It seems more like everyone touched by this scandal is paying a hefty price, no matter how minor of a role they played.
Is it 2013 yet?
