NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - One of two Clarksville attorneys who were found guilty of trying to extort $50,000 from a client has been disbarred.

The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1OhaMwz) reports that the Tennessee Supreme Court decided to revoke the license of Fletcher Long after suspending him in May.

Attorney Carrie Gasaway, who was convicted and suspended along with Long, is still maneuvering through the disciplinary process.

Long declined to comment on the action, but said he is moving forward.

A statement from the Board of Professional Responsibility said Long consented to the court’s decision.
