The Tennessee Supreme Court on Friday suspended Sumner County lawyer Randy Paul Lucas from the practice of law for three years, with six months on active suspension and the remainder on probation. On June 28, 2017, the board filed a petition for discipline against Lucas containing one complaint of misconduct. The complaint alleged that Lucas agreed to represent a client in a personal injury case but failed to take any action on his client’s behalf thereby allowing the statute of limitations in this case to expire. Lucas failed to maintain consistent communication with this client and made repeated misrepresentations to this client. Lucas entered a conditional guilty plea in this matter, and made a payment to the affected client as compensation for his loss.
