The House Judiciary Committee next week will hold a confirmation hearing on Chancellor Carma Dennis McGee of Savannah, who Gov. Bill Lee has appointed to the Tennessee Court of Appeals, Western Section. As part of the process, the committee is asking attorneys who have had experiences with her to send any information they think is pertinent to help members prepare for the confirmation hearing to tennesseejudicialconfirmation@gmail.com. All information must be submitted to the committee by this Friday at 5 p.m. CDT. Under an amendment to the Tennessee Constitution passed in 2014, the governor’s appointments to appellate courts must be confirmed by the General Assembly. Once McGee is confirmed by the General Assembly, she will be subject to regular retention elections.
