According to a news release from the Wyoming State Bar Association, Austin's license was suspended because she improperly disclosed confidential client information in court filings and made false statements to the court while litigating a case.
The court action upheld a Board of Professional Responsibility ruling that Austin "had violated Rules 1.6 (client confidentiality) and 3.3 (duty of candor to the court) of the Wyoming Rules of Professional Conduct."
The high court also ordered Austin to pay an administrative fee of $750 and "to reimburse the Wyoming State Bar for $4,316.06 in costs associated with the disciplinary proceeding."
