Jackson appointed judge for county lawsuit
Placeholder Image
Judge Bart Stanley has recused himself due to a conflict of interest from hearing the case of four county officials versus County Executive John Pelham Circuit Judge Vanessa A. Jackson, Judge for the 14th District, has been ordered to hear the case to its conclusion. Prior to her appointment to the Tennessee Circuit Court 14th District, which serves Coffee County, Jackson was in private practice at a Tullahoma law firm. The lawsuit filed by Trustee Darlene Bryant, Clerk and Master Myra Mara, Circuit Court Clerk Bernie Morris, and County Court Clerk Lesa Scott seeks to increase the pay of county employees in four departments.
