Former Daviess County deputy prosecutor’s law license suspended

DAVIESS CO. – A former Daviess County deputy prosecutor has had his license suspended by the Indiana Supreme Court after failing to respond to an investigation into a filed grievance, according to court records.

Thomas Dysert, formerly of Ripstra Law Office, in Jasper, was served an order of suspension from the Practice of Law at his Washington business address.

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.

According to court records, on April 26, Dysert was ordered to show cause as to why he believed he shouldn’t have his law license suspended for failing to cooperate with the investigation. In that notice, Dysert was given ten days to respond. He didn’t respond.

On July 7 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.

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.
