Former Dickinson Co Atty Who Pleaded Guilty To Public Intox Has Law License Reinstated

Des Moines, Iowa — The Iowa Supreme Court has reinstated the law license of an attorney who was arrested last November in the Dickinson County Courthouse and charged with public intoxication.

Amy Zenor resigned as Dickinson County Attorney, pleaded guilty to public intoxication and claimed she suffers from a rare medical condition that causes her to appear drunk after she’s consumed carbohydrates. The Iowa Capital Dispatch was first to report the Iowa Supreme Court has reinstated her law license.

It happened even after the court’s own Attorney Disciplinary Board concluded Zenor brought alcohol to work with her and that alcohol use was a concern when she worked for Clay County in 2018. A Dickinson County legal secretary told the board Zenor once left a cup in her office that had alcohol in it.

The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled Zenor is fully qualified to resume the practice of law and she’s now working in the Palo Alto County Attorney’s Office.
