Knoxville attorney Patti Jane Lay today announced her candidacy for Fourth Circuit judge. She will run as a candidate in the May 2014 Republican primary. "I have been thinking about this decision for some time, and I concluded I would like the chance to contribute my experience, especially to helping children and families who are going through difficult times," Lay said. The court hears family law matters such as divorce, orders of protection and appeals from juvenile court. For the past 10 years, Lay has served as special master for the court. She previously practiced law in Knoxville.
