Filing Pseudonymously: Wyoming
Very little reported cases from Wyoming courts have Doe plaintiffs. One case tacitly allowed the plaintiffs to use pseudonyms where they bring a constitutional challenge against the state’s anti-abortion law. See Doe v. Burk, 513 P.2d 643 (Wyo. 1973) (where Doe is “named” plaintiff for a class action).
