The Tennessee Supreme Court today upheld a decision to suspend the law license of Gerald S. Green, a Memphis attorney with a long history of disciplinary sanctions. The suspension includes 30 days of active suspension with the remaining five and a half months to be served on probation with conditions. The suspension stems from two client complaints against Green and an additional complaint that he practiced law in Mississippi without complying with that state’s rule governing pro hac vice admission. The first complaint involved a client in a dispute over subpar plumbing work, in which Green offered no proof and made no argument, and his client lost. The second complaint saw a client whom Green failed to advise on numerous occasions. In deciding his suspension, the hearing panel took into account Green's 17 prior disciplinary violations.
