Haslam to Move Quickly on Judicial Appointments

Gov. Bill Haslam said he expects to move quickly in selecting three new state appellate judges from the lists of candidates forwarded to him by the Judicial Nominating Commission in its final days of existence. “Our working assumption is we will name those in the next 60 days,” Haslam told the Times Free Press yesterday. Haslam also said his administration is exploring how to legally handle the unexpected announcement from Supreme Court Justice Janice Holder that she will not seek reelection in 2014.
