NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A lawsuit against a former court-appointed conservator claims he misappropriated at least $450,000 from the estate of an elderly woman.
Nashville lawyer John E. Clemmons was appointed to handle the financial affairs of Nannie P. Malone of Nashville, who has since died.
According to The Tennessean, Malone's daughter, Teresa A. Lyle, filed suit Friday, claiming breach of fiduciary duty, conversion, intentional misappropriation and repeatedly failing to account for the handling of the estate.
A telephone listing for John E. Clemmons in Nashville immediately went to a busy signal on Tuesday.
The lawsuit comes after the Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Clemmons' law license, citing him for misappropriation in a Rutherford County case.
The Nashville judge who appointed Clemmons has removed him from four cases in which he was the conservator.
