Summers Appointed Senior Judge

Former Attorney General Paul G. Summers, a partner in the Waller law firm in Nashville, has been appointed by the Tennessee Supreme Court to a four-year term as a senior judge. He will depart the firm to replace Walter C. Kurtz on Jan. 1, 2013. Four senior judges serve the state at any one time and are assigned on a temporary basis to state courts as needed. Summers said serving as a senior judge will be the “ultimate professional challenge” and that while “working at Waller has been an absolute pleasure… I couldn’t resist the urge to return to public service and complete the circle of my legal career.” The Nashville Post reports
