Lockett Urged to Resign

There was much talk amongst those in the courthouses of East Tennessee about Knox County's Law Director, Bill Lockett, and his admitted theft misappropriation from his previous law firm.

It's somewhat shocking. Law students all take a course in legal ethics, and aspiring attorneys have to pass a national test to be admitted to practice. While there are sticky issues, it's been said that you can pass the test by maintaining two universal truths - don't steal from your clients or your firm, and don't have sex with your clients. Seems pretty simple, doesn't it?

The attorneys I have heard from since the story broke have been near unanimous - Lockett should resign.
