NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- A bill has been forwarded to Gov. Bill Lee for his consideration this week that would change the way legal challenges to Tennessee law are decided.
Davidson County Chancery Court currently hears those cases. However, the leaders of Tennessee’s GOP dominated legislature view the Davidson County courts as liberal and frequently biased against the legislation they pass.
Republicans tried and failed to create a special court, located outside Davidson County, to hear all Constitutional challenges. They passed a compromise measure instead.
