CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)—A Chattanooga lawyer found himself publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court.
According to a release from the court, the disciplinary action was taken against Attorney Brian C. Smith on February 28th after he represented a case involving conflicting interests of an estate.
The Petition for Discipline was filed by the Board of Professional Responsibility, citing a violation of Rule 9 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
Rule 9 forbids lawyers from representing conflicting interests.
Smith was ordered to pay the costs of the disciplinary proceedings.
A public censure is a criticism and warning that doesn't affect an attorney's ability to practice law.
A Bradley County Deputy was involved in a shooting early this morning.
