The Supreme Court of Tennessee has reinstated Bruce H. Guthrie II to the practice of law. Mr. Guthrie had been suspended by the Supreme Court of Tennessee on July 30, 2009, for a period of 26 months retroactive to May 18, 2007.
Mr. Guthrie filed a petition for reinstatement to the practice of law pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 19 (2006).
A hearing panel found that Mr. Guthrie complied with the terms and conditions of his suspension, and further found that he had demonstrated the moral qualifications, competency and learning in the law required for the practice of law, and that his resumption of the practice of law will not be detrimental to the integrity or standing of the bar or administration of justice, or subversive to the public interest. Based upon the Hearing Panel’s recommendation, the Supreme Court reinstated Mr. Guthrie’s license to practice law.
Mr. Guthrie must pay the costs of the reinstatement proceeding.
