TBA Files Petition to Amend Judicial Recusal Rule

The Tennessee Bar Association yesterday filed a petition to amend Supreme Court Rule 10B governing the handling of all motions for the recusal or disqualification of judges. As part of this proposed amendment, the TBA recommends the court clarify that the proper standard of review for any appellate review of the denial of recusal motions is de novo, rather than abuse of discretions.
