Judge Jeffrey S. Bivins of Franklin received the highest marks in a poll released today by the Nashville Bar Association in which its members rated candidates seeking appointment to the Tennessee Supreme Court. Five lawyers are seeking to fill a vacancy that will be created when Justice William C. Koch Jr. retires in July to become dean of the Nashville School of Law. The survey asked lawyers to register a vote of highly recommend, recommend, do not recommend or no opinion. Paul C. Ney Jr. of Nashville received the second highest rank, followed by Nashville lawyer Linda W. Knight. See the full poll results.
