I’m delighted to announce that the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board will hear three appeals in our Historic Courtroom on Wednesday, August 30th, beginning at 9 am. The appeals panel includes the Honorable Marshall L. Davidson as Presiding Judge, as well as Judge David Hensley and Judge Timothy Connor. Biographies for the three judges, as well as the Docket for August 30th, summaries of the cases to be heard that morning, and the briefing for each case can be found here. In addition, the judges have graciously offered to be available to students following the arguments for further discussion.
This is an excellent opportunity for our students, especially our 1Ls, to see an appellate panel in action. I hope all will take advantage of this opportunity by attending as much of the hearing as possible.
