Solicitor General Young Picked to Lead AOC

Bill Young has been appointed administrative director of the Administrative Office of the Courts by the Tennessee Supreme Court. Young — who has served as solicitor general in the Tennessee Attorney General’s office for more than two years — will take on the position held by Libby Sykes, who announced her retirement in August after 27 years in state government. “Bill Young’s years of experience in the attorney general’s office, especially as solicitor general, and in the private sector, as general counsel for BlueCross BlueShield, place him in good stead to lead the administration of the judiciary for years to come,” said Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Gary Wade.
