Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Janet M. Kleinfelter, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellants, James A. Vick, Lela M. Hollabaugh, and the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility.

Attorneys 2:

Janet L. Layman and James Daniel Richardson Roberts, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Connie Reguli.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Attorney filed petition pursuant to the Public Records Act for disclosure of documents held by the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility, the Board’s Chair, and Disciplinary Counsel to the Board relating to eight disciplinary proceedings. Access to the documents had been withheld based on a claim that the documents were exempt from disclosure in accordance with Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 9, § 25.3. Responding officials appeal the trial court’s order that the documents be produced. Finding that the documents sought were confidential and privileged from disclosure, we reverse the judgment and remand with instructions to dismiss the petition.
