Circuit Court Judge Paul S. Phillips acknowledged to state legislators that he is fining the Wyoming director of the Public Defenders program $1,500 per day for contempt.

Phillips was asked by Interim Judiciary Committee Co-Chairwoman Sen. Tara Nethercott, R-Cheyenne, if he was holding Diana Lozano in contempt and fining her $1,000 per day since May 23, the day she notified Campbell County judges that her office would no longer represent misdemeanor defendants in cases.
