Former television judge Joe Brown's law license has been suspended until state officials clear him of a disability.

The Tennessee Supreme Court Board of Professional Responsibility, which oversees attorneys in the state, put Brown's license on "disability inactive status" late last week. The board did not elaborate on the nature of Brown's disability.

"He may return to the practice of law after reinstatement by the Tennessee Supreme Court upon showing of clear and convincing evidence that the disability has been removed and he is fit to resume the practice of law," read a statement from the board.
