Chief Endorses Amendment 2 at KBA Event

Newly installed Chief Justice Sharon Lee last night endorsed Amendment 2 on judicial selection and thanked the bench and bar for the “civics lesson” on the importance of fair and impartial courts delivered to the citizens this summer as part of the judicial retention campaign. Her remarks came during the Knoxville Bar Association's Supreme Court Dinner last night. More than 500 judges and lawyers attended the gathering and celebrated the retention of Justices Lee, Clark and Wade. Justices Jeff Bivins and Holly Kirby, both recently appointed by Gov. Bill Haslam, also were on hand as the court opened its new term in East Tennessee today. KBA President Wade Davies presented a special token of appreciation to Justice Janice Holder upon her retirement.
