The Tennessean reports Rutherford County Attorney Jim Cope resigned from his position on the Pinnacle Financial Partners board of directors after bank officials discovered an unnamed board member may have bought Avenue Financial Holdings stock after learning of merger talks. The more than 10,000 shares were purchased before the public was informed of the merger. A Pinnacle spokeswoman said she cannot confirm Cope, who has served on the board since 2006, is the unnamed member.
