TCA: Attorney Not Entitled to BPR Communications

The Tennessee Court of Appeals has ruled that a Brentwood attorney cannot see state documents related to disciplinary proceedings against her, the Nashville Post reports. Family and divorce lawyer Connie Reguli had petitioned the Board of Professional Responsibility (BPR) for documents related to complaints filed against her in 2009 and 2010. Reguli had been granted access to the documents by Chancellor Ellen Lyle, but the BPR appealed the ruling. The appellate court reversed the decision saying the documents were not subject to a public records request because they were prepared after the disciplinary proceeding against Reguli began.
