One year suspension for attorney who told applicants that having sex with him would be part of the job

About two years ago I reported that the Illinois Adminstrator has filed a disciplinary complaint against an attorney for, among other things, telling an applicant for a poition as secretary in his law firm (in writing) that in addition to general secretarial work she would also be required to have "sexual interaction with me and my partner, sometimes together sometimes separate."  Go here for the original story, which includes the full text of the ad and more information.

Now comes news that the Illinois disciplinary board has recommended a one-year suspension for the attorney.  You can read the opinion here.  You can read more about the story here and here.

One thing that strikes about the decision is how long it took to decide the case -- almost two years since the filing of the complaint in the fall of 2009 - particularly since it is reported that the attorney did not respond to the proceeding at all!
