Longtime school board member Ed Kindall voluntarily put his law license on disability inactive status last week, according to an information release issued by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Responsibility.
“Because of disability status, he’s asked that his license be placed on that status,” said board spokeswoman Krissann Hodges. “I’m limited on what I can say about that any further.”
The Tennessee Supreme Court officially entered the order on May 27.
Kindall, who represents district 7 on the board, could not be reached for comment. He also wasn’t present at the Metro schools budget hearing before the Metro Council on Thursday evening.
The City Paper left a phone message with attorney George Thompson, one of Kindall’s former school board colleagues who has provided legal counsel for Kindall in the past, but it was not returned as of Friday afternoon.
One of the secretaries at Thompson’s law officecalled back and said that, according to Thompson, Kindall has retired from practicing law.
