On April 24, 2014, Scott Leon Ingersoll received a reprimand from the Grievance Committee of the North Carolina State Bar.

On and around September 4, 2012, Ingersoll represented a client in a criminal case. Throughout this representation, Ingersoll violated several rules of professional conduct. Specifically, Ingersoll filed a motion to suppress although he had documents in his possession that refuted his affidavit. Ingersoll also submitted an affidavit of time for his representation of the same client, but there were several discrepancies and inaccuracies. This conduct constitutes reckless disregard of obligations as an attorney in violated of Rule 1.3. In addition to this violation, the Grievance Committee also found that Ingersoll’s failure to use due diligence was potentially prejudicial to the administration of justice in violation of Rule 8.4(d).
