The New York Appellate Division for the Fourth Judicial Department has imposed reciprocal discipline based on a one-year deferred suspension of the attorney in Tennessee. The misconduct involved a self-report of a 2006 incident in which the attorney had possessed a marijuana cigarette. The attorney had completed the terms of the Tennessee court order and the court here imposed the suspension effective in 2006.
