City Judges Allege Exclusion from Charter Revision

Chattanooga City Judge Sherry Paty said she and Judge Russell Bean were left out of the loop by city officials during the process of revising a section of the city charter on the city court, the Chattanoogan reports. The section will be altered significantly since the city judges no longer have “Sessions Court jurisdiction,” according to city attorney Mike McMahan . He said the judges were asked for input, but they did not respond.
