Newly elected Metro Nashville Judge Melissa Blackburn has filed a formal complaint against fellow Judge Casey Moreland, claiming he bullied female employees in a fit of rage last Friday. According to News Channel 5, the incident began when Blackburn received a text from a female employee of the Mental Health Court that read, “Moreland is down here yelling and tearing stuff up.” Blackburn also reported that Moreland entered the suite in a rage, claimed empty offices for himself, and began ripping names off doors and tossing office contents into the hall. Judge Moreland said yesterday he was "astounded" when he read Judge Blackburn’s email, calling the whole thing a “misunderstanding over office space.”
