The Nashville Bar Association today released the results of a member poll for the Aug. 7 General Election. NBA members were asked to comment on contested candidates as well as Supreme Court justices and other appellate judges standing for retention election. The poll found that 8 of 10 lawyers recommend retaining Chief Justice Gary Wade and Justices Cornelia Clark and Sharon Lee. “The goal of doing the poll is to provide the media and the public with information. The purpose is twofold: (1) to encourage the selection of qualified judges and public officials in the judicial system and (2) to have attorneys who are likely to know these candidates, both personally and professionally, provide an opinion on their qualifications,” said Gigi Woodruff, executive director of the association.
