Effective April 19, the Supreme Court of Tennessee suspended Jaramiah Justin Hruska from the practice of law for two years, with 30 days active suspension and the remainder served on probation. Mr. Hruska must pay the Board of Professional Responsibility’s costs and expenses and court costs within 90 days. On November 22, 2016, a petition for discipline was filed against Hruska, and he later entered a conditional guilty plea subject to conditions that he comply with the recommendations of his health care professional and retain a practice monitor for the duration of his probation. The complaints alleged that Hruska pled guilty to the misdemeanor offense of patronizing prostitution for which he received judicial diversion, and for making inappropriate comments to the wife of one of his clients.
