Gov. Bill Haslam will choose from two Memphis judges and a Memphis attorney to fill the upcoming opening on the Tennessee Supreme Court, the Administrative Office of the Courts reports. Meeting Wednesday in Nashville, the Governor’s Commission on Judicial Appointments interviewed candidates for the position and recommended Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Christopher B. Craft, 62; Tennessee Court of Appeals Judge Holly M. Kirby, 57; and John Brook Lathram, 66, a partner in the Memphis office of Bass, Berry & Sims. The new justice will join the court following the retirement of Justice Janice M. Holder next September.
