The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Wendal Douglas Jackson from the practice of law yesterday. The court took the action based on his conviction for the serious crime of attempted extortion. The court previously had transferred Jackson’s license to disability inactive status on July 28 and suspended him on June 17 after determining that he posed a threat of harm to the public. The new order directs the Board of Professional Responsibility to conduct a formal proceeding to determine what discipline should be imposed if and when the disability status is removed.
