On November 17, the Supreme Court of Tennessee reinstated Whitney Suzanne Bailey to the practice of law effective immediately. Ms. Bailey had been suspended by the Supreme Court of Tennessee for two (2) years with forty-five (45) days active suspension and the remainder on probation on January 28, 2020. Ms. Bailey filed a Petition for Reinstatement to the practice of law pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 30.4.
A Hearing Panel found Ms. Bailey complied with the terms and conditions of her suspension, and further found she had demonstrated the moral qualifications, competency and learning in the law required for the practice of law, and her resumption of the practice of law would 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 Ms. Bailey’s license to practice law. As conditions of her reinstatement, Ms. Bailey must engage a practice monitor for the remainder of her probation, remain in substantial compliance with her contract with Tennessee Lawyer’s Assistance Program and pay the costs of the reinstatement proceeding.
