According to the Disciplinary Commission’s complaint, three professional misconduct charges have been filed against Rokita.
They say by referring to Dr. Bernard as an “abortion activist acting as a doctor--with a history of failure to report” during the Jesse Watters show in July 2022 while there was an ongoing investigation, Rokita violated Indiana Rule of Professional Conduct 3.6(a) and Indiana Rule of Professional Conduct 4.4(a), levying his first two charges.
The third count was filed as they say Rokita violated Indiana Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(d) by “intentionally making public statements and/or directing others to issue public statements from July 2022 - September 2022 about the investigation of Dr. Caitlin Bernard, prior to a referral to the Medical Licensing Board, in contravention of the duty of confidentiality required” under Indiana Code.
