Local attorney disbarred

A Chattanooga attorney has been disbarred by the Tennessee Supreme Court, authorities said.

Charles E. Stanbery, Jr. was disbarred on May 18 for taking legal fees while being suspended from practicing law, for failing to communicate with his clients and by failing to diligently pursue their cases, according to a press release from the Supreme Court.

He also was ordered to pay restitution to 11 former clients, the release said.

In addition, Stanbery was found to be in contempt by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, the release said. He was given the chance to purge the contempt charge, the release said, but he never showed up in court.

No, there are plenty of other lawyers that have ethics and morals still available to take cases. Wait, did I really just combine "lawyers" and "ethics and morals" in the same sentence??? Wow, time for a beer!!!!
