Newly elected Knox County chancellor Charlie Pridemore reversed an unsigned order he issued last week via Clerk and Master Howard Hogan that blocked a request from the News Sentinel to photograph his first day on the bench. Attorney Richard Hollow, on behalf of the newspaper and WBIR, filed an objection stating Pridemore failed to issue a signed order and make findings of fact to support his refusal of cameras in the courtroom. Today, Pridemore issued a signed order approving cameras in the courtroom. It did not include any explanation for his reversal. Knoxnews has the story.
