On Thursday, February 1, 2024, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals indefinitely suspended Nashville Attorney Ronald Andre Stewart from practicing law in D.C. due to his disability inactive status in Tennessee.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Ronald Andre Stewart,” with case no. 23-BG-0956.

According to a court order, Stewart was first placed on disability inactive status by the Tennessee Supreme Court in May 2023. As a result, the D.C. Court initiated reciprocal discipline proceedings against Stewart. In November 2023, the court issued an interim suspension while the matter was being investigated.

In its February 1, 2024 order, the D.C. Court of Appeals officially suspended Stewart indefinitely from practice pursuant to the District of Columbia Bar Rules. The suspension will remain in place until Stewart provides proof of reinstatement in Tennessee in accordance with Rule XI, Section 13(g). Reinstatement is also subject to Stewart filing an affidavit compliant with Rule XI, Section 14(g), but he has not yet done so.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that Ronald Andre Stewart is hereby indefinitely suspended from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pursuant to D.C. Bar R. XI, 13(e). Reinstatement is subject to the requirements of D.C. Bar R. XI, 13(g) and respondent’s reinstatement in Tennessee.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Stewart is an attorney in Nashville, Tennessee. He attended the University of Akron School of Law. He acquired his law license in the District of Columbia in 2004.
