Sumner County lawyer Charles Rufus Bobbitt received a public censure on April 16 from the Board of Professional Responsibility. Bobbitt represented a client in seeking modification of a parenting plan. Bobbitt did not affix a proposed parenting plan and verified statement of income to his petition, as required by statute. The court entered an order requiring Bobbitt to correct these deficiencies. He failed to do so, which resulted in the dismissal of the petition. Additionally, Bobbitt failed to file a timely reply to opposing counsel’s counter-petition, resulting in entry of a default judgment. He also failed to maintain good communication with his client throughout the representation.
