Commission Picks Three For TSC Opening

The Judicial Selection Commission has selected three people for the open position on the Tennessee Supreme Court:  Hon. Bill Koch (Judge on the Court of Appeals, Nashville), Hon. D’Army Bailey (Circuit Judge, Memphis) and Houston Gordon (lawyer, Covington).

None of the appointees was from East Tennessee because there are already two justices from that part of the state (Chief Justice Barker and Justice Wade) and the Constitution limits membership on the Court to no  more than two judges from any one Grand Division.
