In 2011, the Tennessee Bar Association honored Scott with the 2011 Justice Joseph W. Henry Award for Outstanding Legal Writing for his article Service of Process After Hall v. Haynes: Practice Tips for Counsel and Advice for Management. He serves on the Editorial Board of the Tennessee Bar Journal and the Publications Committee of the Knoxville Bar Association.
