Nine applicants for the Tennessee Supreme Court vacancy -- created in September by Justice Gary R. Wade's retirement -- participated in a public hearing and interview process today, The Tennessean reports. The Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments will send three recommendations to Gov. Bill Haslam. "Most of our Supreme Court judges historically have had prior appellate experience," said Nashville attorney David Raybin. "That is what I think they would want to look at. You can look at the person’s track record as a judge. That gives you some idea of what that person might do while on the Supreme Court."
