Sumner County lawyer Kenneth Scott Williamson was temporarily suspended on Sept. 6 after the Tennessee Supreme Court found that his continued practice of law posed a threat of substantial harm to the public. In 2010, Williamson began working with the U.S. Freedom Foundation, an organization claiming to assist federal prisoners with legal services. Williamson drafted pleadings and appeared in court on behalf of several clients. Williamson alleges he left the foundation in 2011, however, the organization has continued to accept fees and file pleadings under his signature and Williams has not withdrawn from the cases in which he entered appearances. The suspension remains in effect until dissolution or modification by the court. Download the BPR notice.
