ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota Supreme Court has suspended Golden Valley attorney Randall Tigue for 30 days for trust account violations.

A referee found that Tigue failed to maintain trust account books and recommended a reprimand and three years of supervised probation. The director of the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility argued that Tigue should be suspended for at least 90 days.

The state Supreme Court said while there was no intent by Tigue to deceive his clients, his misconduct was still serious.

In 2007, Tigue was reprimanded and placed on two years probation for failing to maintain his trust account books. He says the suspension is an “annoyance” but nothing he can’t overcome.

Tigue is known for defending Duluth head shop owner Jim Carlson, who was convicted of selling synthetic drugs.
