Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Candace Watson, Jackson, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Lewis L. Cobb, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of Jackson.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

This accelerated interlocutory appeal pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 10B results from the trial court’s denial of a post-trial recusal motion. The Appellant filed a motion seeking recusal of the trial judge from presiding over the preparation of the record for her appeal of the substantive issues in the case. The trial judge denied the motion by written order, making specific findings of fact. The Appellant appeals. Discerning no evidence that would lead a reasonable person to question the trial judge’s impartiality, we affirm the denial of Appellant’s recusal motion.
