A Boatload Of Reciprocal Discipline

The Wyoming Supreme Court has imposed a public censure as reciprocal discipline based on a public reprimand ordered in Utah.

The Utah sanction was imposed by consent and is appended to the Wyoming order.

The misconduct involved client-related misconduct in a single matter.

The Utah order reflects another notable fact.

Other than in Utah, the attorney is admitted in 25 state jurisdictions.

In other words, he is liable for bar dues and professional discipline in over half the states of the United States.

Alaska, Hawai'i, Maryland, Minnesota, Tennesse, Texas, Washington State, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota and on and on.

Is this a record? (Mike Frisch)
