Knox County lawyer James H. Price received a public censure from the Tennessee Supreme Court on Thursday. Price undertook the representation of two long-time debtor clients in a complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding in the Eastern District of Tennessee, during which the Bankruptcy Court found he failed to follow Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Local Rules and Administrative Procedures. He also failed to disclose potential conflicts of interest. Price executed a conditional guilty plea acknowledging the Bankruptcy Court’s findings and that his conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct.
