The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Memphis lawyer Anthony Bernard Norris for five years on Oct. 8 for engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. The court found that Norris, who has been suspended since 1995, assisted in the formation of the law firm of Bruce, Norris & Bass PLLC in 1998, and in 2000, began serving as general counsel for Worldwide Label and Packaging LLC. In addition to the suspension, the court ordered Norris to pay the costs of the disciplinary proceeding and set two conditions for reinstatement: (1) that he pay his Board of Professional Responsibility registration fees from 1996 to present, and (2) that he pay any professional taxes assessed by the Department of Revenue.
