Jennifer Elizabeth Meehan v. Board of Professional Responsibility Of The Supreme Court of Tennessee
M2018-01561-SC-R3-BP

A Board of Professional Responsibility hearing panel found that an attorney should be disbarred after she was convicted of bank fraud. On appeal, the circuit court held that the hearing panel’s decision was arbitrary and imposed a five-year suspension. We reverse. The hearing panel’s decision was supported by substantial and material evidence and was neither arbitrary nor an abuse of discretion.
