Davidson County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Brothers pushed back against allegations made by a colleague that he is biased and should not hear any cases involving a particular attorney, the Nashville Post reports. Judge Hamilton “Kip” Gayden accused Brothers of making disparaging remarks about Brian Manookian, an attorney in a case Brothers was hearing. In an order issued at the end of April, Brothers denied the allegation but agreed to turn the case over to the court’s presiding judge. The plaintiffs and defendants “all deserve to have this case decided on the merits and not be tainted by constant skirmishes over Mr. Manookian’s behavior,” Brothers argued.
