A board recommendation for a one year suspension of an attorney was accepted by the Wyoming Supreme Court. The attorney had been on an interim suspension and had failed to appear in several matters.He also had been arrested in possession of marijuana.
After he had failed to respond to bar proceedings, an attorney was appointed to represent him who was unable to locate him and opined that he may suffer from psychological problems and had moved out of state. The board had held a hearing on November 14, 2008 and filed its report less than two weeks later. The court issued its own decision today effective January 2. (Mike Frisch)
