I am a little late in posting today because I have been busy preparing for a speech and panel discussion in Knoxville. The Tennessee Journal of Law & Policy is honoring Justices Drowota, Anderson and Birch today; I have been invited to speak about the impact that these gentlemen have had on Tennessee tort law. I am honored to have the opportunity to participate in this program.
To get ready I read tort opinions for an hour or so last night and started again at 4:30 this morning. Tort law has come a long way in Tennessee since 1990, and these gentlemen played a major role in advancing the cause of justice in Tennessee.
Justice Drowota retired last year and Justices Anderson and Birch retire at the end of August. They will be sorely missed.
