The members of the Bristol Tennessee Bar Association unanimously adopted a resolution today supporting retention of all judges on the state Court of Appeals and Court of Criminal Appeals as well as the three Supreme Court justices who will face voters Aug. 7. The association reported that it took the position based on recommendations from the Tennessee Judicial Evaluation Commission, believing that promotion of a fair and impartial process for electing jurists is necessary to ensure the integrity of the state’s legal system. The group also reports that the five judges present at the meeting did not vote on the resolution in accordance with Canon 4 of the Code of Judicial Conduct.
