A new law altering the Board of Judicial Conduct was passed by the legislature this year, so the current board will sunset on June 30 and be replaced on July 1. Under the new law, four of the Tennessee Judicial Conferences appoint one or two members each and the Tennessee Supreme Court appoints one member. The new board members are Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Camille R. McMullen, 18th Judicial District Criminal Court Judge Dee David Gay, 11th Judicial District Chancellor Jeffrey M. Atherton, Stewart County General Sessions and Juvenile Court Judge G. Andrew Brigham, Municipal Court Judge H. Allen Bray and Benton County General Sessions Judge John Whitworth. In addition to the judicial members, the new board will also include appointees from Gov. Bill Lee, the Speaker of the House and Speaker of the Senate.
