On Oct. 18, the Supreme Court of Tennessee temporarily suspended Lewis County lawyer Larry Joe Hinson, Jr. from the practice of law upon finding Hinson misappropriated funds and poses a threat of substantial harm to the public. Section 12.3 of Supreme Court Rule 9 provides for the immediate summary suspension of an attorney’s license to practice law in cases of an attorney’s misconduct. Hinson is immediately precluded from accepting any new cases, and he must cease representing existing clients by Nov. 18.
