Wyoming Supreme Court suspends lawyer for a second time
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Supreme Court has suspended a Cody lawyer for a second time, extending his suspension by an additional six months.
The Cody Enterprise reports the Wyoming Supreme Court announced Nov. 22 that it found that Attorney Nick Beduhn did not provided adequate defense for a female client while she was facing a DUI charge in 2016, pushing back his suspension to Nov. 6, 2019.
The Wyoming State Bar Board of Professional Responsibility came to a similar ruling during Beduhn’s initial two-year suspension.
Beduhn was also charged with more fines on top of the more than $10,000 he was already fined.
He is ordered to pay $1,355 to the board in fines and administrative costs, and return the $1,000 he charged his former client by Jan. 2.
