Case Name: Board of Professional Responsibility, Wyoming State Bar v. William D. Elsom

Citation: 2008 WY 76

Docket Number: D-07-0004

Order Suspending Attorney From the Practice of Law

The matter came before the Court upon a “Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and Recommendation for Reinstatement” filed June 4, 2008, by the Board of Professional Responsibility for the Wyoming State Bar. The Court reviewed the Board’s report, the transcript of the Board’s hearing and the file. The Court accepted in part and rejected in part the Board’s recommendations.

The Board concluded that Elsom was eligible to be reinstated however the Court differed with the Board with respect as to how the period of suspension would be measured. The Court stated that Elsom was suspended from the practice of law for two years beginning September 25, 2007 and was required to pay $3,095.54 for the costs of the Board’s hearing. The Court noted that Elsom had a CLE suspension on which the Board of Continuing Legal Education had not yet recommended reinstatement and that he must resolve that suspension. The suspension shall be published in the Wyoming and Pacific Reporters and the information transmitted to the Board and the clerks of the appropriate courts in Wyoming.
