The Tennessee Bar Association Board of Governors approved a series of proposed changes in state conservatorship law at its winter meeting. The recommendations now will be forwarded to legislative leaders. Among the proposed changes, the recommendation establishes a uniform emergency placement process, clarifies the role of guardians ad litem, requires court orders to specify rights being taken away and calls for more frequent financial reports. The recommendations follow a series of hearings held across the state at which committee members heard from witnesses who lost all of their assets as victims of conservatorships.
