Yesterday Hawkins County lawyer John Stephen Anderson received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. A client hired Anderson to represent her in a car accident. Though Anderson filed a lawsuit, he did not timely serve process on the defendant.  For three years, Anderson falsely told his client he was in the process of trying to settle the case. The lawsuit was dismissed by the court. Because Anderson has received prior public discipline for similar conduct during the same time period, he is hereby publicly censured for these violations.|
