Painter Named Cleveland City Attorney

The Cleveland City Council yesterday selected Barrett Painter as the new municipal judge, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. Painter, an attorney with the firm of Chancey, Kanavos, Love & Painter, was selected over Andrew Morgan, an associate at Richard Banks & Associates and a member of the Cleveland City Council. Painter’s selection continues a family tradition. His father, Harlan Painter, served as Cleveland city attorney for over 40 years. Painter will be sworn in Sept. 8 at the Museum Center at Five Points. He will replace interim city judge George McCoin, who has been serving since the death of Judge Bill Moss.
