The City Paper's Pierce Greenberg looks at the results of a Nashville Bar Association poll showing that Mike Jameson and Phillip Robinson get the most high recommendations in the Davidson County judges primaries:
The poll revealed that roughly 49 percent of 1,062 NBA members “highly recommended” Jameson for a General Sessions seat. Jameson, a former Metro council member, was appointed by the council to replace Judge Leon Ruben as General Sessions judge in November 2011.
Rachel Bell, an attorney at Bell & Kinslow PLLC, and defense attorney Jack Byrd only received a combined 139 “high recommendation” votes, compared to Jameson's 518.
Robinson received a 40.8 percent “high recommendation” compared to attorney Stanley Kweller's 16.6 percent.
