Florida-based lawyer Thomas W. Thompson on Monday was publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court. On July 6, 2018, a petition for discipline was filed against Thompson, alleging that he committed ethical misconduct by practicing law while suspended for failing to comply with continuing legal education requirements. Thompson was suspended by the Tennessee Supreme Court on Aug. 16, 2016, for failing to comply with continuing legal education requirements. While suspended, four lawsuits were filed in Tennessee naming him as the attorney for the plaintiffs.  The lawsuits were prepared and filed by Thompson’s non-lawyer staff without his knowledge, and he has not yet withdrawn from the cases.
