Governor Haslam has chosen Lang Wiseman, former head of the Shelby GOP, to the Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments.
According to the Memphis Business Journal:
The council was created by executive order after the Nov. 4 passage of a constitutional amendment that established a method for judge selection for the Supreme Court and any intermediate appellate court in Tennessee.
The council will recommend candidates to Haslam for vacancies in Tennessee’s trial and appellate courts. Three members from the western, middle and eastern divisions of the state plus two members at-large form the Council.
Members from the western division include: Lang Wiseman of Wiseman Bray PLLC (Memphis), George Brown of Resolute Systems LLC (Memphis) and Bradford Box of Rainey Kizer Reviere & Bell PLC, (Jackson).
The two members at-large are Randy Noel of Butler Snow LLP (Memphis) and David A. Golden of Eastman Chemical Company (Kingsport).
“This council will ensure that we continue to have a strong, independent and impartial judicial system in our state,” Haslam said in a press release Monday. “I am grateful to these members for their willingness to serve and their work to maintain a strong judiciary in Tennessee.”
The governor has chosen well. Lang Wiseman is an outstanding attorney and citizen.
