Lt. Governor Ramsey appoints Dr. Richard Manahan to
Court of Judiciary

(NASHVILLE, TN), March 19, 2009
Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) today announced the appointment of Dr.  Richard Manahan of Johnson City to serve on the Court of the Judiciary.  The  15-member Court investigates, hears, and determines charges regarding the  discipline or removal of a Tennessee judge.

“Dr. Manahan will make an excellent addition to the Court of the Judiciary,”  said Lt. Governor Ramsey.  “His character and experience is exactly what we need  to maintain the integrity and fairness of the judicial system.”

Dr. Manahan will serve as one of three public members of the Court who are  not sitting judges, retired judges, or a member of the Tennessee Bar  Association.  He will fill the slot vacated by Jane Latimer, whose term ended in  January.

“I could not think of a more respected Tennessean for Lt. Governor Ramsey to  appoint to this Court than Dr. Manahan,” added State Senator Rusty Crowe  (R-Johnson City), who also recommended him for appointment.  “Dr. Manahan has  served our community well throughout the years.  His character and reputation  are beyond reproach.  We are very proud of him.”
