Case Name: BOARD OF PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY, WYOMING STATE BAR v. JODY MONTGOMERY VANNOY, WSB #5‑2345
Docket Number: D-12-0007
Pursuant to Section 17 of the Disciplinary Code for the Wyoming State Bar, Bar Counsel for the Wyoming State Bar filed, on August 20, 2012, a “Petition for Interim Suspension of Attorney.” The following day, Bar Counsel filed an “Amended Petition for Interim Suspension of Attorney.” The Court, after a careful review of the Petition for Interim Suspension, the amended petition, the “Affidavit of Bar Counsel in Support of Petition for Interim Suspension of Attorney,” and the file, concludes that the petition for interim suspension should be granted and that Respondent should be suspended from the practice of law pending resolution of the formal charge that has been, or will be, filed against her. See Section 17(c) (“Within fifteen (15) days of the entry of an order of interim suspension, Bar Counsel shall file a formal charge.”) It is, therefore,
ADJUDGED AND ORDERED that, effective September 21, 2012, the Respondent, Jody Montgomery Vannoy, shall be, and hereby is, suspended from the practice of law, pending final resolution of the formal charge that has been, or will be, filed against her; and it is further
ORDERED that, during the period of interim suspension, Respondent shall comply with the requirements of the Disciplinary Code for the Wyoming State Bar, particularly the requirements found in Section 22 of that code; and it is further
ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 4(a)(iv) of the Disciplinary Code for the Wyoming State Bar, this Order of Interim Suspension shall be published in the Pacific Reporter.
DATED this 12th day of September, 2012.
