Another Judge Vacancy

Gov. Bill Haslam will get a chance to appoint another judge.

Judge Lynn W. Brown, Criminal Court judge in the 1st Judicial District, is retiring and the Judicial Nominating Commission is taking applications to replace him. The applicants will be interviewed and three names will go to Haslam for him to make the choice.

The commission has already sent a list of three names to Haslam to replace Judge Herschel Franks who is also retiring.

Corrected: A previous version of this item mistakenly inferred that Judge Brown was on the Tennessee Court of Appeals. He is actually a Criminal Court judge.
