9 of 10 Lawyers Recommend Retention of Justices

Nine out of 10 lawyers recommend that Tennesseans vote to “retain” the three Tennessee Supreme Court Justices on the Aug. 7 ballot. That’s the result of a Tennessee Bar Association Candidate Evaluation Poll conducted over two weeks in early June. "We want to help the voting public make an informed decision in these retention elections by compiling the views of Tennessee lawyers and presenting them broadly,” TBA President Jonathan Steen of Jackson said. “These results provide a much better measure than partisan labels as to the issue of a judge’s capabilities."
