State Bar seeks to disbar Bujak

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho State Bar is seeking the disbarment of former Canyon County prosecutor and gubernatorial candidate John Bujak. Bar counsel for the Idaho State Bar, Bradley Andrews, filed a complaint Thursday alleging Bujak violated rules regarding professional conduct. The complaint addresses many of the allegations made in Bujak's criminal trials. Bujak resigned in 2010 after being accused of embezzlement from Canyon County and was eventually found not guilty of the charges. He was acquitted again in 2014 of other charges including bankruptcy fraud and money laundering. Bujak has been practicing law in Eagle since his license was restored in August. Bujak didn't immediately return a call for comment Monday. He has 21 days to respond to the complaint or longer if he seeks an extension.
