On July 10, Sullivan County lawyer Kay Jeffrey Luethke received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. Luethke improperly commingled trust funds into his operating account and personal funds into his trust account on several different occasions. Luethke also held funds in his trust account which were not related to any representation, withdrew funds without allowing adequate time for a check to clear, and inadvertently used trust funds to pay a personal debt without reconciling his account and correcting the problem.
