Judicial Evaluation Process Announced

The Tennessee Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission today announced the survey process to obtain input from attorneys on their experiences with appellate judges in the state. Over the next six weeks, lawyers who have participated in the appellate process, trial judges who have had cases appealed and reviewed in the appellate process, appellate court judges who have participated alongside other appellate judges in the appellate process, and court personnel who interact with appellate judges on a daily basis will be asked to evaluate that specific judge. The commission says that each survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. Surveys will be distributed beginning June 3 and will continue through July 16. Each survey will be anonymous and will remain open for 14 days. Read the notice from the commission.
