Effective August 2, the Supreme Court of Tennessee suspended Greene County lawyer Edward Lee Kershaw from the practice of law for a period of four months, with 30 days served on active suspension and the remaining three months to be served on probation. The trial court determined Kershaw made comments toward the court and asked questions of a witness which were intended for no other purpose but to embarrass the witness and disrupt the judicial proceedings; published statements in a local newspaper about the court which Kershaw knew were untrue and were intended to call into question the judge’s qualifications and integrity; and published statements on social media which were made with reckless disregard and called into question the qualifications and integrity of all the judges in Greene County.
