Defendant, an attorney, while candidate for nomination to the office of Justice of the Supreme Court of Wyoming, wrote and circulated a pamphlet making false, contemptuous and scandalous charges against the court. He admitted in the pamphlet that he became a candidate for the sole purpose of attacking the court. Held, preparing and circulating such a pamphlet amounted to willful violation of defendant's duties as an attorney of the State of Wyoming, and constituted a legal cause for his suspension from practice for six months. State Board of Law Examiners v. Spriggs, (Wyo. 1945) 155 P. (2d) 285.
