    Tennessee creates Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission to improve judges

    Bill: SB3652 (PDF)

    Sponsored by Sen. Mike Bell and Rep. Vance Dennis, and signed into law by Gov. Haslam, SB3652 requires that the House and Senate speakers appoint all nine members of the new Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission. The House and Senate speakers each appoint four members, consisting of one state judge, two attorneys and one non-attorney. A third state court judge member will be appointed jointly by the speakers. The statue ensures that judicial selection and performance evaluation will be heavily influenced by elected leaders of the Legislature.
