License Litigation

The professional licensing boards, commissions, and committees within the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency are charged with the responsibility of disciplining licensees who have violated practice standards, acted dishonestly, or acted unethically. The standards of practice are located in IC 25-1-9 (health professions) and IC 25-1-11 (non-health professions). Additional standards of conduct may be contained in the individual board, commission, or committee statutes and rules. Click HERE for additional information about the disciplinary process.

Information regarding the effective dates of disciplinary actions taken by a board, commission, or committee (hereafter referred to as "board").

In most cases a final action taken by the board in a disciplinary proceeding does not go into effect until a written order is issued by the Board, which does not occur until the order has been signed and file marked. The respondent cannot be required to comply with the order until the respondent has been served with the order or has actual knowledge of the order, except in the case of certain summary suspensions, settlements, or agreed orders (Indiana Code 4-21.5-3-3). Actual knowledge cannot be implied by the Respondent's presence at the hearing. State law provides that the board may take up to ninety days to issue an order (with an extension of time available in certain cases). This means that a disciplinary action taken by a board in a public meeting likely will not be effective immediately. Orders are posted on the agency's license litigation site. If you have a question regarding a board action, please feel free to contact the board staff directly. Contact information is available on each board's web page.


The "case caption" is the name or title of the case. In reviewing the litigation cases, you may have noted that some are captioned "The State of Indiana v. John Doe, M.D.," while others are captioned "In the Matter of the License of John Doe, M.D."

Effective June 20, 2007, The Office of the Attorney General began using the latter caption on all cases filed, as this manner is more consistent with their duties and responsibilities in regard to diciplinary cases. As in all previous cases, the Office of the Attorney General is the prosecuting body in all Complaints that go before the various boards and commissions.
