The Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments met today to consider three applicants – Walter B. Johnson II of Lenoir City, Porsche Lyn Shantz of Lenoir City and Jeffery H. Wicks of Rockwood – for the impending criminal court vacancy in the Ninth Judicial District, which serves Loudon, Meigs, Morgan, and Roane counties. The seat will become vacant Dec. 31 when Judge E. Eugene Eblen retires. The council recommended all of the candidates to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration.
