The Supreme Court of Tennessee today temporarily suspended Williamson County attorney Matthew David Dunn from the practice of law for failing to respond to the Board of Professional Responsibility regarding a complaint of misconduct. Section 12.3 of Supreme Court Rule 9 provides for the immediate summary suspension of an attorney’s license to practice law in cases of an attorney’s failure to respond to the board regarding a complaint of misconduct. Dunn is immediately precluded from accepting any new cases, and he must cease representing existing clients by March 16.
