Table I summarizes the disposition of disciplinary cases reaching the Supreme Court of Ohio for final action in 1988, and eight earlier years. This note discusses the volume of activity during 1988 compared with earlier years, the sanctions that were given, and rule changes affecting discipline. It comments on the types of offenses and the shortfall of Ohio's disciplinary system as measured by the American Bar Association Standards for Lawyer Discipline and Disability Proceedings (hereinafter "ABA Standards"). It recommends a further change in the rules.
