A Billings attorney faces a 10-month suspension for withholding information from a judge in an adoption case and hampering investigations into his conduct in two other cases.
The Montana Supreme Court filed orders last week that Roy W. Johnson Jr. be suspended practicing law for three months for the adoption case and for another seven months for failing to turn over requested documents in two other cases. The suspensions begin Sept. 1.
Johnson could not be reached for comment. His office phone number is out of service and no one answered a call to the phone number listed in the court filings.
Johnson was publicly censured by the Montana Supreme Court in 2008. In February 2011 he was censured and put on probation for two years, and in December 2011 he was suspended for 60 days.
