Bristol attorney David W. Tipton was the unanimous choice of city council members to fill the unexpired term of longtime Municipal Court Judge Shelton Hillman Jr., who died last month after serving for more than 30 years. “There is no way to replace Judge Hillman,” Tipton said following his selection. “I was an associate in the firm of Slaughter, Jackson, Cooper & Watson as a clerk when I met Shelton back in 1977. He was a very special person.” Tipton earned his law degree from Memphis State University. He currently is lead partner in the firm of Tipton & Jones. Tri-Cities.com has more.
