Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Janice M. Holder announced that she is retiring at the end of her current term and will not seek re-election in the August 2014 judicial retention election. Holder became the third woman to serve on the Tennessee Supreme Court and the first to serve as chief justice. “It has been my privilege to serve the people of Tennessee as a trial judge and Supreme Court justice – and an honor to have been selected by my fellow justices as the first female chief justice in our state’s history,” Justice Holder said in a letter to Gov. Bill Haslam. Read more about Holder's career at the Administrative Office of the Courts' website.
