First Judicial District Criminal Court Judge Lynn Brown last week closed out his long career by signing his last legal order. The Johnson City Press reports that it was a “a peaceful conclusion to a 24-year career in which he had presided over some of the most newsworthy trials in Upper East Tennessee…” In an interview with the paper, Brown talks about his inspiration for a career in the law, why he took the hardest courses he could in law school and which of the many cases he handled as a prosecutor are the most memorable.
