The Nashville Bar Association bestowed one of its top honors on 20th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Joe P. Binkley Jr. at its recent 2019 Law Day luncheon in Nashville. At the luncheon, Binkley was named the recipient of the NBA’s annual Liberty Bell Award, which is “given to a person or group who [has] promoted better understanding of the rule of law, encouraged greater respect for law and the courts, stimulated a sense of civic responsibility, or contributed to good government.” The other major award of the day, the Jack Norman Sr. Award, was given to First Assistant Federal Public Defender Mariah A. Wooten.
