In Memphis, Shelby County Chief Defender Stephen C. Bush and Cecil C. Humphrey’s School of Law Dean Peter Letsou spoke to the panel. Private lawyers shared their issues and experiences as they are faced with the cap on compensation with juvenile cases. The next stops on the task force's listening tour are May 19 in Johnson City and May 20 in Knoxville.
