George Avery Mott of Nashville was suspended yesterday from the practice of law for one year, with 30 days active suspension and the remaining time to be served on probation. The Board of Professional Responsibility filed a Petition for Discipline due to two complaints arising out of Mott’s conduct in Bankruptcy Court. In the first complaint, Mott incorrectly informed his client that his annuity would not become property of the trustee if he filed a Chapter 7 petition. The second complaint came from a trustee, who alleged that Mott failed to pay filing fees or file motions for filing fees to be paid in installments, failed to file a pre-trial brief and exhibit list in one case, failed to submit an order to reopen a case once a motion to reopen was unopposed, and failed to show good communication with his clients.
