Former Hamilton County General Sessions Judge Ron Durby had his law license transferred to disability inactive status by Tennessee's Supreme Court on Dec. 5, according to a news release.

This means that Durby cannot practice law unless the Supreme Court later decides he's shown "clear and convincing evidence that the disability has been removed and he is fit to resume the practice of law," according to the news release.

Durby resigned as a judge in October 2012 due to an undisclosed disability, according to newspaper archives.

He said then in a letter, "It is my hope and prayer that I may recover quickly and sufficiently return to my duties serving the people of Hamilton County."
