The Supreme Court of Tennessee today disbarred Carter County lawyer Gregory Scott Norris from the practice of law and ordered him to pay restitution to eight former clients, totaling $17,360. After a trial, a hearing panel found that Norris failed to appear in court on numerous occasions, stopped corresponding with opposing attorneys, made incoherent arguments in court, took fees from clients for which he did little to no work, failed to advise clients of his temporary suspension, failed to communicate, failed to return files and abandoned numerous client matters. On January 26, 2018, Norris was temporarily suspended by the Supreme Court. That suspension is now dissolved.
