The Judicial Nominating Commission has sent to Gov. Bill Haslam three finalists for the judge seat in Davidson County Circuit Court that has been vacated by Barbara Haynes. Two of three were among the favorites of Nashville Bar Association members when they were polled last month.
Family law attorney Phillip Robinson is the top choice of Nashville Bar Association members surveyed about the candidates looking to take the seat of Circuit Court Judge Barbara Haynes. Robinson received both the highest number of 'Highly recommend' nods and the fewest 'Do not recommend' votes. Coming in second and third in the survey were Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Partner Joycelyn Stevenson and Stanley Kweller of downtown firm Jackson Kweller McKinney Warden & Hayes. Check the full results here.
Those interested in filing the Circuit County judge's seat that will be vacated Nov. 15 by Barbara Haynes have until noon on Oct. 31 to submit their info to the Judicial Nominating Commission. That body will interview candidates and submit three names to Gov. Bill Haslam.
