Law license of Baxter Springs attorney suspended for a year

BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. — The Kansas Supreme Court has suspended the law license of Baxter Springs attorney Chris Meek for a year, in an opinion issued today.

Under the ruling, an underlying 40-month suspension would be stayed after a year, with a little more than two years of supervised probation following that.

The discipline is based on Meek’s 2011 federal misdemeanor conviction for unlawful possession of the painkiller hydrocodone.
