(Cleveland)-  Former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann's license to practice law has been reinstated, about six months after it was suspended by the Supreme Court.  Dann asked the court about three weeks ago to reinstate the license.

The suspension was part of the scandal that engulfed Dann after  two women working in the Attorney General's office brought sexual harassment allegations against a manager.  

Dann resigned in 2008 following criminal convictions against him and several aides.

Dann released the following statement:

“Today’s decision brings to an end an incredibly challenging period of my life. Since leaving public office a little more than 5 years ago I have learned a great deal about the importance of taking responsibility for one’s actions and my respect for the rule of law has grown . I am also especially grateful to my colleagues, clients family and friends for their love and support during this difficult time.

I return to working on behalf of my clients with renewed energy for standing up to the banks and big business on behalf of individuals and small businesses. I intend to continue to fight the battle against wrongful foreclosures and rejoining the fight to protect the rights of hard working people.”
