The Supreme Court of Tennessee reinstated Arkansas attorney Scott Douglas Fletcher to the practice of law yesterday. Fletcher was suspended for a period of five years by order of the Arkansas Supreme Court on Sept. 29, 2011, and his license in Tennessee was subsequently suspended on Feb. 23, 2012.  Fletcher filed a petition for reinstatement, which a hearing panel recommended after determining he possessed the moral qualifications required for admission to practice law in Tennessee, and his resumption of the practice of law would not be detrimental to the integrity and standing of the bar or the administration of justice, and would not be subversive to the public interest.
