Former Nashville judge Casey Eugene Moreland was disbarred today by order of the Tennessee Supreme Court, consecutive to any period of incarceration. The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Moreland on June 5, 2018, based upon his guilty plea to obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to retaliate against a witness, conspiracy to commit theft, destruction of records and tampering with a witness. The Board of Professional Responsibility instituted a formal proceeding to determine the extent of final discipline to be imposed. Moreland entered a conditional guilty plea to disbarment and any restitution ordered in United States of America v. Moreland.
