Fourth Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Duane Slone, whose groundbreaking work in the courtroom has given new hope to many battling addiction issues, was recently honored with the National Center for State Courts Distinguished Service Award. NCSC President Mary McQueen presented Judge Slone with the award during the Tennessee Judicial Conference earlier this month. McQueen cited Judge Slone’s close involvement with the NCSC-coordinated, multistate Regional Judicial Opioid Initiative (RJOI). Judge Slone serves as the chairman of that first-of-its-kind undertaking, which McQueen said is now being emulated by other states and regions.
