Editor: Tennesseans were LIED TO by Governor Haslam and other Republicans during the 2014 election about their right to VOTE for Tennessee Supreme Court Justices and others. Amendment 2 ELIMINATED the language in the Tennessee Constitution guarantying Tennesseans the right to elect Justices which had been unlawfully ignored for more than 40 years. The Campaign for Amendment 2 was a complete deception. See DETAILS BELOW.January 7, 2016, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today appointed Roger Amos Page of Madison County to the Tennessee Supreme Court, replacing Justice Gary R. Wade, who retired in September.
Page, 60, has been a judge on the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals since his appointment by Haslam in December 2011, writing more than 330 appellate opinions. He previously served as a circuit court judge for the 26th Judicial District, which includes Chester, Henderson and Madison counties. In that position, he presided over more than 300 civil and criminal jury trials.
“We are fortunate to have someone with such a depth of experience for this important position,” Haslam said. “Judge Page has a distinguished career both as a judge and an attorney, and Tennesseans will benefit from having him on the Supreme Court.”
