Tennessee Supreme Court elects Lee chief justice

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Justice Sharon Lee has been elected chief justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court.

Lee was among the three Democratic state Supreme Court justices who withstood a conservative effort in last week's state election to oust them from the bench.

The campaign turned the normally routine yes-no "retention" ballot question for justices into a political gambit that featured a blitz of TV ads and Republican-led fundraising seeking to sway the makeup of the court.

Lee has been a member of the high court since 2008. Her new role takes effect Sept. 1.
