No New Rule 8.4(h) For Tennessee

The Tennessee Supreme Court has entered an order denying the petition of its Board of Professional Responsibility to amend its Rule 8.4 to add a subsectuon (h) prohibiting engaging "in a professional capacity, in certain discriminatory conduct."

The court concluded that the rule and comment to subsection (d)(conduct prejudicial to the administation of justice), which tracks the ABA Model Rules, sufficiently deals with the issue. (Mike Frisch)
