Wyoming Supreme Court Suspends Colorado Lawyer

The Wyoming Supreme Court issued an order of reciprocal discipline suspending Colorado lawyer Brian M. Reed Benight from the practice of law for a period of two years.

The reciprocal order of suspension stemmed from a corresponding order issued by the Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Colorado Supreme Court and followed Benight’s plea of guilty and conviction in Colorado of a criminal act that reflects adversely on Benight’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.

Benight was ordered to pay an administrative fee in the amount of $750.00 and costs of $50.00 to the Wyoming State Bar.
