In the matter of Scott C. Stockwell ( .PDF )
Topeka A Lawrence attorney has been suspended from the practice of law for one year, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled Friday.
The court ruled that Scott C. Stockwell was dishonest in an estate case in which he advised a judge that no will had been written when in fact one had been.
The legal dispute centered on the will of a Jefferson County man who died in 2010.
Contacted by the Lawrence Journal World, Stockwell said, "The court, after careful consideration, has rendered its judgment and I respect that judgment and will fully comply with their order."
Stockwell said he didn't want to comment further.
