A bill introduced by Tennessee Sen. Brian Kelsey, chair of the Judiciary Committee, would abolish Divisions 1 and 5 of Shelby County Circuit Court effective Sept. 1, the start of the next eight-year judicial term. The Memphis Bar Association's Bar Bulletin notes that the bill, SB1484, also would remove the two judgeships from the county's general election ballot this August. The bill is scheduled to be considered by the committee next Tues., Jan. 21, at 2:30 p.m.
