Breaking News: Knoxville News-Sentinel reports Janice Holder to become first female Chief Justice

I first saw through Kleinheider, who linked to R. Neal, who gave me the News-Sentinel link.

This is great news, and a well-deserved promotion for Justice Holder, who was selected by her colleagues to succeed retiring Chief Justice William Barker, who will be gone as of September 1. Governor Bredesen will select Barker's replacement on the Court from either East or West Tennessee; the new Justice will be an associate.
