Justice Lehman Dies After Battle with Cancer

Cheyenne, Wy – Wyoming Supreme Court Justice Larry Lehman
has lost his battle with cancer.
Chief Justice Bill Hill confirmed this morning that
Lehman has died at the age of 59.
It was just four months ago that Lehman announced he was
receiving radiation treatment for brain cancer. Lehman originally
had planned to seek a retention vote, but later changed his mind.
He had planned to step down from the Supreme Court next month.
Lehman was appointed to the court in 1994 by then-Governor Mike
Sullivan. He was the first chief justice to serve a four-year term
on the court.
