Journal Readers Now Can Comment on Online Articles

A new feature, beginning this month, allows readers to comment on Tennessee Bar Journal articles posted online. Comments are not anonymous and can only be made by TBA members who are logged in to the site. This new capability is designed to make the online Journal more interactive and useful to readers. Also in this month's issue, Paul J. Krog walks you through the prior-suit-doctrine and James M. Patterson explains how to classify workers correctly as either independent contractors or employees. Columnists Edward G. Phillips, Monica Franklin, Don Paine and Bill Haltom weigh in with informative contributions, and in his last column as president, Danny Van Horn reminds readers to support and remain involved in the association as Tennessee law “faces a future where merit selection is in peril.” Watch for the Journal in your mailbox or read it online and comment now.
