Court: TN Supreme Court

Attorneys 1:

Herbert S. Moncier, Knoxville, Tennessee, pro se appellant.

Attorneys 2:

Sandy Garrett, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Board of Professional Responsibility.

Judge(s): CLARK

An attorney suspended from the practice of law for eleven months and twenty-nine days, with all but forty-five days of the suspension probated, was assessed costs associated with the proceedings that resulted in his suspension pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, section 24.3. The attorney timely filed a petition seeking relief from costs, and a panel of the Board of Professional Responsibility convened and conducted a hearing on the petition. The panel denied the petition, and the attorney has appealed to this Court, as permitted by Rule 9, section 24.3. Having carefully and thoroughly considered the record and each of the nine issues raised, we affirm the panel’s decision denying the petition for relief from costs.
