Knoxville Judge Charles D. Susano will be honored Friday with the prestigious Justice Frank F. Drowota III Award at the 2017 TBA Convention, which opens tomorrow in Kingsport. Susano was selected for his many years of service on the courts – he has served on the Court of Appeals since 1994, and until 2015 was Chief Judge – as well as for his advocacy work for juveniles and disabled individuals. The Drowota Award is given to a judge or judicial branch official of a federal, state or local court in Tennessee who has demonstrated extraordinary devotion and dedication to the improvement of the law, the legal system and the administration of justice as exemplified by the career of former Supreme Court Justice Frank F. Drowota III – the award’s first recipient.
