Wyoming Supreme Court Disbars Utah Lawyer

The Wyoming Supreme Court today issued an order disbarring Utah lawyer Stuwert B. Johnson from the practice of law in Wyoming, effective November 1, 2018.  The order of disbarment was issued upon the recommendation of the Board of Professional Conduct of the Wyoming State Bar, which held a hearing to determine the appropriate sanction for a variety of professional misconduct committed by Johnson in Utah, where his license to practice had been under suspension since February 2016.  In consideration of the extent and nature of Johnson’s misconduct, which included numerous incidents of negligent representation of clients, trust account violations, ignoring a subpoena issued by a Utah agency, five DUI arrests in a 10-month period and a plea of guilty to a bad check charge relating to his trust account, the Board of Professional Responsibility determined that disbarment was the appropriate sanction for Johnson’s misconduct.  The Wyoming Supreme Court adopted the Board’s recommendation and issued an order of disbarment.  Johnson was ordered to pay an administrative fee of $750.00 and costs of $1,912.56 to the Wyoming State Bar.
