Second Panel Sent to Gov. Haslam for Criminal Court Opening in 11th Judicial District

July 23, 2015

The Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments met in Chattanooga to hold a public hearing and conduct interviews of a second slate of applicants for the Criminal Court vacancy in the 11th Judicial District, which serves Hamilton County.

After interviewing the candidates and conducting a vote, the Council has submitted the following three as nominees to Gov. Bill Haslam for the vacancy:

The vacancy was created by the retirement of Judge Rebecca Stern June 1. The Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments previously met on April 9 and considered seven applicants, three of whom were submitted to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration. Pursuant to an executive order signed last fall, the governor requested the Council submit a second panel of three nominees for his consideration. The governor may elect to choose from either of the two panels.
