Gass appointment
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam on Monday appointed James L. Gass of Dandridge as Circuit Court Judge in the 4th Judicial District, filling a temporary appointment that had been made last October. On October 18, Haslam appointed Gass as special judge to fill a temporary vacancy due to the illness of Judge Richard R. Vance. Judge Vance died on December 3, 2017, creating the need for Haslam to make an appointment to serve until the next general election. The 4th Judicial District serves Jefferson, Grainger, Cocke and Sevier counties. I appreciated Jim Gasss willingness to serve on a temporary basis. I am confident he will use his years of experience and involvement with the community to continue to well serve the 4th Judicial District, Haslam said. I am very grateful to the governor for the opportunity to continue my service to the citizens of the 4th Judicial District, Gass said. I will work each day to impartially and fairly carry out the duties expected of our courts. Prior to his appointment to the bench, Gass, 58, was a 34-year career trial attorney with extensive experience in civil trials and serving in both prosecution and defense roles in criminal cases. He has qualified for the November balloting to fill the unexpired term of Judge Vance.
