Hamilton attorney Robert Myers says he will fight his disbarment handed down by the Montana Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court issued its decision on Dec. 28, saying there was "clear and convincing evidence" that Myers violated multiple provisions of the Montana Rules of Professional Conduct and the Montana Code of Judicial Conduct during his 2016 campaign for 21st Judicial District judge.
Myers told the Ravalli Republic that there is no evidence statements he made during the campaign were false. He also accused the Supreme Court of protecting District Judge Jeffrey Langton by not looking into allegations Myers made against him.
He said he plans on petitioning for a rehearing and asking the justices to recuse themselves, and also petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his case.
"They didn't prove a single thing," Myers said. "They didn't say what was reckless, how it was reckless or when it was reckless. Nothing. Those opinions are completely devoid of any facts except for the ones made up by the Supreme Court."
