Chancellor Goldin Named to Court of Appeals

Shelby County Chancery Court Judge Arnold B. Goldin has been selected by Gov. Bill Haslam to fill a vacancy on the Tennessee Court of Appeals’ Western Section. He will replace Alan E. Highers, who is retiring. Goldin, a graduate of the University of Memphis law school, was appointed chancellor in 2002 by then-governor Don Sundquist, was elected in 2004 and was re-elected to a full eight-year term in 2008. "Chancellor Goldin has done an outstanding job and will be an excellent judge on the Court of Appeals,” Haslam said. “His experience on the bench and in private practice will serve the people of West Tennessee well.” The Commercial Appeal has more.
