LORAIN – An attorney being sued by former clients has resigned his law license.

Michael William Fine resigned a while ago and his resignation was just accepted by the Ohio Supreme Court, his attorney said.

“He resigned on advice of legal counsel,” said attorney Robert Housel, who represents Fine.

According to the Supreme Court of Ohio website, the court accepted his resignation “with disciplinary action pending.”

Former clients say Fine allegedly hypnotized them in order to have sexual conduct with them. They said this happened while they had meetings with him at his office and inside conference rooms at the Lorain County Justice Center.

“These allegations are not true,” Housel said.

The FOX 8 I-Team went to Fine’s home to discuss the allegations with him, but he declined to speak with us.

Housel added no criminal charges have been filed against his client.
