The Tennessee Supreme Court disbarred Nashville lawyer Bennett Farris Bratcher, pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 18.5. The court issued the order April 26 for the disbarment that will become effective May 6. Bratcher consented to disbarment because he could not successfully defend himself against complaints filed with the board alleging that he misappropriated funds relating to the representation of three clients. His actions violated Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 8, Section 8.4(c) (engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation). Download the BPR release
