Idaho Supreme Court: Bujak's One Year Law License Suspension Appropriate


Idaho's high court has decided that John Bujak, former Canyon County Prosecutor, broke the Idaho State Bar rules and that his one-year suspension of practicing law in Idaho was appropriate.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Bujak was hit with a 14-page complaint, alleging that he had violated the Bar's Rules of Professional Conduct between 2004 and 2011, including charges that he had failed to properly deposit checks intended for a client's estate and had convinced a client to name Bujak as a beneficiary to the client's will.

A spokesman for the Idaho State Bar said there are "additional matters still under investigation," according to the Press-Tribune.

The Press-Tribune reports that Bujak, to date, has seven months of the 12 month suspension "banked."

Bujak will appear on the November 4 ballot as the Libertarian candidate for Idaho governor.
