New Ombuds Program Serves Jacksonville Bench and Bar

The Jacksonville (Tennessee) Bar Association has created an "Ombudsman" subcommittee within its Judicial Relations Committee. Volunteers with the committee will be available to listen confidentially to concerns from both the Bar and the Bench about issues regarding each other. JBA President, Dan Bean says that the committee is not intended to circumvent any current mechanisms in place that resolve problems or any other formal grievance procedures, and believes it will provide yet another outlet to resolve issues and keep relationships between the Bench and Bar positive.
