By order of the Tennessee Supreme Court entered March 5, Thomas Patrick Cooper was disbarred from the practice of law effective immediately. On July 20, 2018, the Tennessee Supreme Court ordered the immediate suspension of Cooper based upon his plea of nolo contendere to one count of grand theft and one count of defrauding a financial institution in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court in Florida. On Aug. 9, 2018, the Board filed a petition for final discipline. A hearing panel determined the appropriate sanction in this case is disbarment.
