One of Tennessee’s most distinguished jurists was honored at a retirement reception in Nashville. State and local leaders gathered at the reception to celebrate the career of the Hon. Seth Walker Norman, the founder of Tennessee’s first Drug Court and a Criminal Court judge in the 20th Judicial District for the past 28 years. Judge Norman stepped down from the bench at the end of August, but will retain the title of Senior Judge and will continue to be involved in the Davidson County Drug Court (DC4). Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Jeff Bivins spoke at the event, calling Judge Norman “a true trailblazer…a man who brought Drug Court to the front and center before many of us knew what Drug Court meant.”
