Wyoming chancery court open for business
Wednesday, December 01, 2021
Wyoming’s chancery court is now open, state Supreme Court Chief Justice Kate Fox announced Wednesday.
The court will handle business and trust cases on “an accelerated schedule,” a release from the state’s judicial branch said.
For now, three district court judges will take on chancery cases in addition to their existing caseloads while the state finds someone to appoint as a full-time chancery court judge in 2023. Wednesday’s release said that Judges John Fenn of Wyoming’s fourth district, Richard Lavery from the third district and Steven Sharpe in the first district have experience in business litigation.
