Judge Brandon Gibson of the Tennessee Court of Appeals was recently named the new chair of Tennessee’s Board of Judicial Conduct. The board is responsible for investigating and, when warranted, acting on complaints brought against state and local judges. It is composed of 16 members from all parts of the state, including lawyers, citizens, and judges from all levels of Tennessee's court system. “Serving on the board and chairing it is an honor, as the public's confidence in the judiciary is one of the most important pieces of our democracy,” Gibson said. “I don't take the task lightly, and I take very seriously the obligation to treat both the public and judges fairly.”
