Davidson County lawyer Erich Webb Bailey on Monday was publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court. On Oct. 4, 2017, a petition for discipline was filed against Bailey, alleging that when he represented the mother in a child custody dispute, he failed to communicate with his client and failed to appear in court when the matter was set for hearing. Bailey entered into a conditional guilty plea admitting that his actions violated the Rules of Professional Conduct. On July 17, 2017, he was temporarily suspended by the Tennessee Supreme Court for substantial noncompliance with a previous TLAP monitoring agreement. Bailey is reinstated from that suspension via the order which publicly censured him.
