Knox County lawyer John O. Threadgill was disbarred June 6, and then a second time on July 12 by the Tennessee Supreme Court. He was also ordered to pay restitution of more than $24,000 to four former clients. The Board of Professional Responsibility filed petitions for discipline against him pursuant to Rule 9, Section 8.2, of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Tennessee, charging him with misappropriation of client funds, neglect of client matters, failure to communicate with clients, and practicing law while suspended. The board also filed a petition for final discipline against him based upon his guilty plea to theft in State of Tennessee v. Threadgill. Download the BPR release
