Re: “The Layoffs Have Begun At 1100 Broadway

Mo Patton??? Really? My old employer has run off its share of talent over the years, but to jettison a writer with such a loyal following all over town just blows my mind.

Re: “Remembering the late John Seigenthaler, the man who embodied the power of the press

He obviously had German roots, David, but his mother, Mary Brew, was I believe the daughter of Irish immigrants. He often referred to himself as being "Irish" in one way or another.

A remembrance worthy of the man. Thank you, Bruce.

Re: “TN Chamber: Pro-Union Push Pollers Hijacked Our Identity

The calls continued Sat. morning. I got calls from "TN Chamber" on both of our land lines just after 10 a.m.

Re: “General Sessions Courts Raise Bar For Waiving 12-Hour Holds

The phone call also gave rise to a Code of Judicial Conduct violation on Moreland's end (one of several), in that he made a decision on the basis of the ex parte communication and did not promptly inform other parties -- like the victim.

Rule 2.9 Ex Parte Communications

(A) A judge shall not initiate, permit, or consider ex parte communications, or consider other communications made to the judge outside the presence of the parties or their lawyers, concerning a pending or impending matter

(B) If a judge receives an unauthorized ex parte communication bearing upon the substance of a matter, the judge shall make provision promptly to notify the parties of the substance of the communication and provide the parties with an opportunity to respond.

Re: “The David Chase Saga: Chief Anderson's Memo to Presiding Judge

justaskin, Chase has money and a good lawyer. I started to write that if he had any priors, they would surely be expunged by now, as happened with these two cases:

https://www.nashvillepost.com/news/2007/12…

http://nashvillepost.com/news/2012/4/9/exe…

But then I checked, and lo and behold: Dude not only has FOUR arrests since 2006 for DUI or Implied Consent, but Bryan Lewis just got one of the cases nolled by Casey Morehead five days before the first alleged assault. This is the man Richard Branson's people chose to handle the teardown of an 1836 mansion and development of a Virgin hotel? For real.

Hey, biz people: I hire out to do due diligence. Just sayin'.

Chase's CCC rap sheet is pasted below. The type is going to look messy, but the info is all there:
