Nashville attorney James D. R. Roberts Jr. was suspended today from the practice of law for six months by the Tennessee Supreme Court. The court took the action after Roberts gave false testimony while testifying before the Davidson County Chancery Court regarding his representation of a client in a declaratory judgment action involving a family company and his attempts to stop the sale of company stock.
