The Tennessee Supreme Court has amended Rule 13, sections 2 and 3 of the rules, regarding the appointment, qualifications and compensation of counsel for indigent defendants. The change becomes effective July 1. The court had solicited comment on the proposal on May 25, and received numerous comments from individual members of the bar across the state, as well as the Tennessee Bar Association, the Knoxville Bar Association, the Marshall County Bar Association and the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
