Boyd M. Patterson, Jr., Among 18 Names That Nominating Commission Sent To Governor Haslam

Saturday, June 29, 2013

The Judicial Nominating Commission met on Thursday in Chattanooga, on Friday, in Nashville, and Saturday, in Jackson, to hold public hearings and conduct interviews of candidates for the upcoming Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals and Court of Appeals vacancies.

After interviewing a total of 35 candidates for the three positions, the commission selected these attorneys, including Boyd M. Patterson, Jr., from Chattanooga, for nomination to Governor Bill Haslam for consideration in the following openings. Two panels were forwarded for each vacancy because the governor has the option to reject the first panel and the Judicial Nominating Commission, which by law ceases to exist after Sunday would not be able to act and select a second panel.
