140+ Judicial Candidates Sign Code of Conduct

More than 140 judicial candidates running for election this year have signed the Tennessee Fair Judicial Campaign Code of Conduct, in the first release of names by the TBA today. The list includes justices and judges facing retention elections, as well as judges and challengers in contested elections. The code of conduct program invites judicial candidates to agree to a campaign code aimed at preserving public faith in the integrity of the justice system. Since the effort was announced last fall, the TBA has been gathering information about judicial candidates and informing them about the code of conduct program. Learn more about the Code of Conduct or see the list of those who have agreed to abide by it on the TBA's Judicial Selection Information Center. Judicial candidates who have not yet signed the pledge but desire to do so should email or call TBA staff member Karen Belcher, (615) 383-7421.
