Inactive Lawyers Suspended for Failure to Pay Fee

The Tennessee Supreme Court issued an order March 5 suspending 11 lawyers who assumed inactive status but did not pay the required annual inactive status fee to the Board of Professional Responsibility. In January 2012, the court adopted amendments to Rule 9, Sections 20.1, 20.2 and 20.8, which included the new fee requirement. The fee is due on or before the first day of the attorney’s birth month each year. See the list of those suspended.
