The House Ad Hoc Committee on Judicial Confirmation and Senate Judiciary Committee today unanimously approved Roger Page to fill a vacancy on the Tennessee Supreme Court. Page was appointed to the position by Gov. Bill Haslam, but was subject to approval by the House and Senate committees under the Conference Committee on Judicial Confirmation’s recently adopted judicial confirmation process. While speaking before the House committee, Page expressed the importance of improving the state’s indigent defense system. He also said he will recuse himself from any cases that present a conflict of interest with his wife, Davidson County Chancellor Carol McCoy.
