Vote to Retain Judges Is A Victory for Justice

   
keith williams-sm As most of our friends, family, and former clients know, we don’t usually dabble in politics at Lannom & Williams Trial Attorneys. While we all have passionate personal opinions, which result in frequent and lively discussions, we don’t let any political differences get in the way of our friendship, professional respect, or our assertive representation of our clients.

We did break tradition this year by strongly urging Tennesseans, through our e-newsletter and social media, to vote to retain the judges who were up for a Retention Vote this August. We were alarmed that state government and special interest groups, with the help of millions of dollars from unnamed donors who weren’t even in Tennessee, were trying to interfere and fundamentally change the judicial branch in Tennessee. District Attorneys, public defenders, and attorneys across the state came together in vocal opposition to the vicious and personal attacks waged against these judges.

As my law partner, Frank Lannom, put it: “If the Supreme Court, after ending the practice of Jim Crow laws in the 50's and 60s, had been up for a retention vote, I am sure they would not have been retained. It took courage, and Justices with true judicial freedom, to enforce the Constitution to prohibit the inhumane actions that were being inflicted on American citizens.” The process that has been used to appoint Supreme Court Judges in Tennessee for over a century is exceedingly fair and impartial. The judicial branch of the government must remain free of the taint of politics and big money influence. Tennesseans took charge of their right to an impartial court when they voted overwhelmingly to RETAIN the judges this year.

I think a statement from New York University’s bi-partisan Brennan Center for Justice sums it up well, “We see judges or justices being targeted for unpopular and controversial decisions that they make on the bench, and that’s concerning because you want judges to decide cases based on the law and on the Constitution and not on popularity.” I am hopeful that Tennesseans, and all Americans, will continue to see through big money corporate lobbyists’ lies and deceitful claims, and that we will continue to vote on the side of liberty and personal freedom!
