Tennessee Supreme Court Justices Cornelia Clark, Holly Kirby and Sharon Lee and former Justices Martha Craig Daughtrey, Janice Holder and Penny White spoke to a full house last night during Lipscomb University’s Fred D. Gray Dinner. The “Women of the Tennessee Supreme Court” panel paid tribute to 100 years of women’s suffrage in Tennessee and was moderated by TBA Executive Director Joycelyn Stevenson. One story that drew laughs from the crowd was former Justice White recounting a time she was pulled over for speeding. Noticing her judicial license plate, the officer asked White, “Honey, are you in a hurry to get home and see the judge?” to which White responded, “No honey, I am the judge!” All proceeds from the ticketed dinner go toward the Fred D. Gray Scholarship given to up to four Lipscomb University students majoring in Law, Justice and Society.
