The Supreme Court of Tennessee on Monday temporarily suspended Travis Waymon Tipton from the practice of law upon finding that he was in substantial non-compliance with the terms of the monitoring agreement with the Tennessee Lawyer’s Assistance Program. Section 12.3 of Supreme Court Rule 9 provides for the immediate summary suspension of an attorney’s license to practice law in cases of an attorney’s noncompliance with TLAP’s monitoring agreement. Tipton is immediately precluded from accepting any new cases, and he must cease representing existing clients by Aug. 1.
