Re: “Chief Justice Defends Tennessee Plan, Calls Direct-Elections for State Judiciary "Ridiculous"

Chief Justice Janet Holder's effort to subordinate the Supreme Court to the Legislature and thereby destroy the checks and balances of the three separate but equal branches of government, is improper and violates the Constitution.

Former Supreme Court Judge Allison Humphreys said it best, in his 1972 dissenting opinion in the Higgins vs Dunn case when he said: "Have we not like "Esau" sold our precious birthright, equality and freedom, for a mess of pottage, a cheap easy way to be retained in office."

I believe it my duty as a lawyer to report Chief Justice Janice Holder to the Court of Judiciary for her conduct in making the speech before the Kiwanis Club in Memphis, which violates the Judicial Canon of Ethics. She should be severly criticized by the Court of the Judiciary for her blatant disregard of her oath of office. As I believe her conduct in this matter makes her unfit to be a Judge.
