The Colorado Supreme Court has suspended the law license of 11th Judicial District Attorney Linda Stanley.
The 11th District consists of Chaffee, Custer, Fremont and Park counties.
Recently, Stanley was the DA overseeing the case against Barry Morphew. Morphew was accused of murdering his wife who vanished on Mother’s Day 2020, until Stanley filed a motion to have all the charges dismissed without prejudice.
As of right now, Stanley received an administrative suspension for failing to comply with continuing legal education requirements. Those educational requirements include 45 credit hours over a 3-year period.
The Attorney Regulation Counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court could not comment on how many hours she has or has not completed, only that she was “not in compliance.”
In order for her license to be reinstated, she would have to show that she’s completed those 45 hours and file paperwork to have her license reinstated.
