Adams and Reese Managing Partner Gif Thornton will chair Tennessee Governor Bill Lee's Council for Judicial Appointments, Gov. Lee announced this week.
"The Council for Judicial Appointments reflects some of the brightest legal minds in our state," said Gov. Lee in a press release. "The work they do to ensure we have the most qualified candidates is vital to the health of our justice system."
Gif joins three new and six existing members who serve the council, which is responsible for recommending candidates to the governor to fill vacancies for Tennessee's appellate courts.
