The Tennessee Supreme Court today suspended Thomas Patrick Cooper of Miami Beach, Florida, from the practice of law until further orders of the court. Cooper was suspended based upon his criminal conviction for grand theft and defrauding a financial institution in the matter of The State of Florida v. Thomas Patrick Cooper, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court in Broward County. The court’s order is effective immediately. The matter has been referred to the board to institute formal proceedings to determine the extent of the final discipline to be imposed upon Cooper as a result of his conviction of a serious crime.
