2018: NASHVILLE BAR ASSOCIATION RECOMMENDS PATRICIA HEAD MOSKAL FOR CHANCERY COURT

NBA endorsements have not been predictive for recent vacancies SEE ORIGINAL ARTICLE FROM NASHVILLE POST BY AUTHOR Stephen Elliott


The Nashville Bar Association released a poll Friday in which more than half of respondents recommended Bradley Arant Boult Cummings partner Patricia Head Moskal for a forthcoming Davidson County Chancery Court vacancy. The seat will come open upon Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman’s retirement at the end of the year. More than 45 percent of respondents said they highly recommend Moskal, with an additional nearly 16 percent saying they recommended her. NBA endorsements have not been predictive, though. Last month, Gov. Bill Haslam appointed Jennifer Smith to the Davidson County Criminal Court despite more than half of NBA respondents saying they did not know her. The Trial Court Vacancy Commission is scheduled to meet with the candidates on Tuesday, after which the body will forward three names for Haslam’s consideration. The other applicants: • David Michael Anthony — A member at Bone McAllester Norton, primarily practicing bankruptcy, banking and real property law • Stanley A. Kweller — An attorney at Jackson Kweller & Hayes, primarily practicing family law • Christopher C. Sabis — Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Middle District of Tennessee, primarily working on civil health care fraud • Scott P. Tift — A partner at Barrett Johnston Martin & Garrison who ran unsuccessfully for a different Chancery Court seat earlier this year
