The Tennessee Supreme Court issued the first order of the year on March 12, suspending attorneys who did not pay their 2012 registration fee to the Board of Professional Responsibility and did not file a mandatory compliance statement that eligible client funds are held in accounts participating in the Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program. The court also issued a separate order for those attorneys who paid their fee but did not file the IOLTA report. Beginning in January, the court began entering administrative suspension orders on a monthly basis, based on attorney birthdates. Suspension lists will be issued each month for those attorneys who do not meet filing requirements for that month. See the list of those suspended to date
