Fletcher Whaley Long v. Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee

Fletcher Whaley Long v. Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee
M2013-01042-SC-R3-BP

A Hearing Panel of the Board of Professional Responsibility determined that an attorney had violated multiple disciplinary rules and imposed a public censure. The attorney appealed, and the trial court affirmed the Hearing Panel’s decision. On appeal to this Court, the attorney raises a number of issues, including a facial constitutional challenge to Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 9. After reviewing the evidence and the applicable law, we reject the attorney’s constitutional challenge to Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 9, and we conclude that his other issues are without merit. We therefore affirm the judgment of the trial court.
