The Tennessee Supreme Court today entered an order denying the request of Davidson County lawyer Brian Phillip Manookian for dissolution of his temporary suspension. Manookian was temporarily suspended from the practice of law on Sept. 21 of last year upon a finding that he poses a threat of substantial harm to the public. On Sept. 28, Manookian filed a petition to end his suspension. A hearing was held and the Board of Professional Responsibility's panel recommended his petition be denied. On Jan. 22, Manookian filed a second petition, and following a hearing, he was again denied.
