Board of Judicial Conduct Defines Role

Circuit Court Judge Michael Sharp explained the role of the Board of Judicial Conduct to the Bradley County Bar Association this week, the Cleveland Daily Banner reports. In July the General Assembly created the board to replace the Court of the Judiciary in handling complaints against Tennessee judges. “There have been several complaints that went unanswered from the public’s perspective.” Sharp said. “Legislators began to look into that and decided there had to be more transparency.”
