Tea party figure Phillips disbarred again

Attorney Judson Phillips, the founder of Tea Party Nation, has been disbarred again, WSMV-TV reports.

“Mr. Phillips consented to disbarment because he could not successfully defend himself on charges alleged in forty-one pending disciplinary complaints,” according to the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility.

Phillips was previously disbarred last year after clients alleged his withheld unreasonable fees for work related to timeshare litigation.

Phillips organized the 2010 National Tea Party Convention in Nashville. He has been a regular contributor to the conservative Tennessee Star website.
