NASHVILLE - Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has appointed Thomas R. "Skip" Frierson, II as a judge for the Tennessee Court of Appeals, Eastern Section.
    Frierson replaces the Hon. Judge Herschel P. Franks, who retired at the end of 2012.
    Frierson, Former State Senator Mike Faulk and and Chancellor Jerri S. Bryant, representing the 10th Judicial District, were the candidates for the post.
    "Skip Frierson has spent the last 23 years serving in public office in East Tennessee, and he brings a wealth of experience to the bench," Haslam said. "We are fortunate to have someone in this role with his qualifications and expertise."
    Frierson has served as chancellor in the Third Judicial District, which is comprised of Hamblen, Greene, Hawkins and Hancock counties, since 1996. In 1990, he was elected as Hamblen County General Sessions Court judge, serving in that capacity as judge of the Domestic Relations Court, Probate Court and as municipal judge for the City of Morristown.
    Frierson's appointment leaves the chancellor post vacant, which will also be filled by a gubernatorial appointment.
