The Supreme Court of Tennessee today disbarred Davidson County attorney Judson Wheeler Phillips effective immediately. Phillips must pay the court costs within 90 days of the entry of the order of enforcement. Phillips consented to disbarment because he could not successfully defend himself on charges alleged in 41 pending disciplinary complaints. Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 23, requires that Phillips’ consent to disbarment be maintained under seal. Phillips was previously disbarred on Aug. 24, 2018. He has not been reinstated from that disbarment.
