The Tennessee Supreme Court last week appointed Gail Vaughn Ashworth and Sharon R. Ryan to full three-year terms on the court’s Access to Justice Commission. They will serve through March 31, 2017. Ashworth was originally appointed to fill the unexpired seat of Bill Young, while Ryan was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Maura Abeln Smith. The court noted that both lawyers had made “valuable contributions” through “exemplary service to the commission” and should be appointed to full terms. The court also named Ann Jarvis Pruitt to the commission for a three-year term beginning April 1. She replaces Francis S. Guess, whose term expires on March 31. Download the court's order.
