Colorado Supreme Court suspends law license of 11th Judicial District Attorney

FREMONT CO., Colo. (KRDO) -- The Colorado Supreme Court suspended 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley's law license Wednesday.

State judicial leaders say Stanley's license was suspended due to failure to submit required Continuing Legal Education (CLE) information for law licenses. Stanley cannot practice law or appear in court until her license is reinstated.

The Colorado Supreme Court says it sent Stanley several notices alerting her that she was out of compliance and at risk of a license suspension. According to state judicial officials, the 11th Judicial District Attorney's Office will continue business as usual and that this will not impact active cases in Fremont, Custer, Chaffee, and Park counties.

Stanley tells 13 Investigates she received a letter from the state last week about the license issue and that she fully intends to fix the issue. Stanley says there was a mix-up in who was sending what for the license requirements. She also said the suspension is "not a big deal" and that law license suspensions are not uncommon.

In Colorado, lawyers must complete 45 credit hours of continuing legal education every three years after becoming certified by the Colorado Bar Association.

Stanley's law license suspension can be reversed 14 days after she submits the required paperwork. The paperwork must show that the necessary legal education is complete.
