Court of Appeals Judge Patricia J. Cottrell and Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Joseph M. Tipton have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not seek retention in the August 2014 election. The departures will create vacancies on the two appeals courts as of Sept 1, 2014 and the Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC) has elected to complete the nominating process for these two openings prior to June 30. Candidates interested in applying for either opening can find the application and more information here.
