Part Of An Attorney's Continuing Education

The Tennessee Supreme Court ordered a one-year suspension of a Nashville attorney who had used his trust account as a personal account and caused several overdrafts, failed to perform paid-for legal services and

...submitted false affidavits to the Commission on Legal Education and Specialization claiming to have participated in legal training he never attended.

He must also pay restitution and undergo an assessment by the lawyer assistance program as conditions of reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)

All of that and only one year's suspension?

Interesting that the court failed to go into any of the details of the case or attach the judgement of the hearing panel despite adopting it as the court's judgement.
