A new lawsuit has been filed in the ongoing dispute between attorney Dale Buchanan and his son, Michael Buchanan, over the operation of their firm, The Chattanoogan reports. The filing claims Michael Buchanan hired his wife, a non-lawyer, as chief executive officer, as well as hired several other family members and in-laws. The firm allegedly provided his wife a luxury car and hundreds of thousands of dollars for doing little work, as well as paid for vacations for her and her family. Dale Buchanan first sued his son in 2015, saying that Michael Buchanan was using the firm for personal affairs. That suit was settled in 2016.
