By order of the Tennessee Supreme Court entered Aug. 30, the law license of George Ernest Skouteris was transferred to disability inactive status after the Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline against Skouteris. By orders filed Feb. 21, 2014, April 21, 2015 and Feb. 9, 2016, the Tennessee Supreme Court previously disbarred Skouteris. Skouteris has not requested, nor been granted, reinstatement from these disbarments and they remain in effect. Skouteris cannot practice law while on disability inactive status and may not return to the practice of law unless and until he is reinstated from his disbarments, his disability status is removed, he is determined to be fit to resume the practice of law by the Tennessee Supreme Court, and his pending disciplinary action is resolved.
