The Supreme Court of Tennessee today entered an order suspending Knox County lawyer James Lester Kennedy from the practice of law for a three-year period. Kennedy knowingly made appearances in Knox County Probate Court and filed pleadings in cases pending in New York and Pennsylvania without informing the Court and opposing counsel of his suspension on July 20, 2017. In addition to misleading courts and opposing counsel, Kennedy failed to provide substantive responses to the board’s requests for information regarding the disciplinary complaint.
