Knox Lawyer Censured for Trust Account Violations

Knox County lawyer Stephen Todd Hastey received a public censure from the Tennessee Supreme Court on Feb. 4. The court imposed the discipline after it determined that Hastey used trust account funds to pay personal and business expenses; used trust account funds to pay a filing fee for a client though the money was intended for another purpose; and paid a medical provider from personal funds after a trust account check went unprocessed for 10 months and funds were no longer available to cover the payment.
