The Tennessee Supreme Court today suspended Sumner County lawyer John T. Harding from the practice of law for one year, with 30 days being on active suspension and the remainder served on probation. Harding executed a conditional guilty plea to the Board of Professional Responsibility’s filing that he failed to reasonably communicate with his client regarding the status of a case and failed to act in a diligent manner and expedite the client’s litigation. He must pay fees to the BPR and comply with the Supreme Court’s rules for suspended attorneys and the procedure for reinstatement.
