8th District Chancery Court Judge Sworn In

Andrew Tillman became Tennessee’s newest judge after he was sworn in last week to fill the Chancery Court opening in the 8th Judicial District, which serves Campbell, Claiborne, Fentress, Scott and Union Counties. The opening was created by the death of Chancellor Billy Joe White. Tillman, who graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1989, worked as a senior law clerk to Judge Charles D. Susano Jr. since 2009. Tillman also worked in private practice, clerked for U.S. Circuit Judge H. Ted Milburn, and taught at the UT College of Law as an adjunct professor. The Claibrorne Progress has the story.
