Attorney Spence Bruner has gotten into more trouble with the Tennessee Supreme Court.

On Jan. 31 the court suspended the Harriman attorney’s law license for 90 days.

He was temporarily suspended

by the court on Feb. 19 for failing to

respond to the Tennessee Board of

Professional Responsibility regarding a complaint of misconduct.

The board oversees the conduct of attorneys for the Tennessee Supreme Court.

“Section 4.3 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,” a board press release on Bruner’s suspension said.

Having his livelihood interrupted is not new for Bruner.

He was suspended in 2008 and 2011. He was also censured in 2005.
