Governor Bill Haslam recently announced the 11 members of the Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments.  Of those 11 members, TLAW’s President, Cheryl G. Rice, was appointed as one of the three members representing the Eastern Division of Tennessee, and Rice will serve as Chair of the Council.  Governor Haslam created the Council by an executive order following the recent passage of Amendment Two to the Tennessee Constitution.

After receiving notice that a trial or appellate court vacancy has occurred or is impending, and after a public hearing, the Council will select three candidates who are most qualified to fill the vacancy and send those names to the governor as nominees for the appointment.  The governor will fill the vacancy by appointing a person from among the three nominated or require the Council to submit a panel of three additional nominees.

Rice is a shareholder at Egerton, McAfee, Armistead & Davis, P.C., in Knoxville, where she focuses her practice on commercial litigation, contract disputes, and creditors’ rights.

Join TLAW in congratulating Cheryl on her recent appointment!
