New Judicial Conduct Board Commences

The newly established Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct will hold an organizational meeting Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Administrative Office of the Courts, 511 Union St., Suite 600 in Nashville. Members of the public are invited to attend. The board replaces the old Tennessee Court of the Judiciary, whose members were appointed by the Tennessee Supreme Court. Legislation enacted this year calls for appointments by the leaders of both houses of the legislature as well as the governor. Among those appointed to date are Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Chris Craft, Tennessee Appeals Court Judge Holly Kirby of Memphis, Madison County General Sessions Court Judge Christy R. Little of Jackson and Miles Burdine, president and chief executive officer of the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce. Look for a complete list of members to come. The Memphis Daily News reports
