Gov. Bill Haslam has appointed James L. Gass of Dandridge as special judge for Circuit Court in the 4th Judicial District. The appointment fills the temporary vacancy due to the recent illness of Circuit Court Judge Richard R. Vance. The 4th Judicial District serves Jefferson, Grainger, Cocke and Sevier counties. I appreciate Jim Gasss willingness to serve in this capacity, and this will help serve the citizens of the 4th Judicial District, Haslam said. Gass, 58, is a 34-year career trial attorney with experience in both civil and criminal cases, serving in both prosecution and defense roles in criminal cases. He has been a partner at Ogle, Gass & Richardson in Sevierville since 1998. And has served as attorney for Pigeon Forge, Dandridge and Pittman Center. He also was an Assistant District Attorney for the 4th Judicial District for ten years. Im extremely honored and humbled by this opportunity given to me by the governor to serve the people of the Fourth Judicial District, Gass said. I have great admiration for Judge Vance and the many years of service he has given to this position and will do everything I can to honor his legacy. Gass received a law degree from Cumberland School of Law.
