Davidson County lawyer John Benneth Iwu received a public censure on Wednesday from the Board of Professional Responsibility. In December 2017, Iwu authorized two electronic payments representing filing fees from his trust account knowing that his trust account contained personal funds that would not be sufficient to cover the amount of the payments. While Iwu anticipated depositing client funds into the account to cover the filing fees, he ultimately forgot, resulting in an overdraft on the account.
