Sammons Order Struck Down

Campbell County Judge Amanda Sammons is again under fire, this time for asking the Department of Children Services to drug test citizens in court bathrooms, Knoxnews reports. That action was appealed to 8th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge John McAfee, who struck down Sammons' drug-testing order, saying she "has no authority to enter a blanket order purporting to bind a non-party to a non-case." Sammons is currently on probation following an ethics investigation into accusations of misconduct in the courtroom.
