Posted on July 30, 2018

On March 22, 2018, the Tennessee Supreme Court entered an Order appointing Hanson R. Tipton a Hearing Committee Member for District II for the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility (“BPR.”)  The BPR’s mission is “[t]o assist the Court in protecting the public from harm from unethical lawyers by administering the disciplinary process; to assist the public by providing information about the judicial system and the disciplinary system for lawyers; and, to assist lawyers by interpreting and applying the Court's disciplinary rules.”

BPR Disciplinary Counsel investigate complaints alleging unethical conduct.  If an investigated complaint reflects a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct, Disciplinary Counsel recommend diversion, private informal admonition, private reprimand, public censure, or the filing of formal disciplinary charges.  If the BPR authorizes Disciplinary Counsel to file formal disciplinary charges (i.e., a petition for discipline) against an attorney, the matter is assigned to three district committee members who constitute a Hearing Panel.  The Hearing Panel sets the disciplinary proceeding for a hearing and conducts the hearing.
