THE TENNESSEE OPEN MEETINGS ACT

The Tennessee Open Meetings Act (commonly referred to as the “Sunshine Law”)became effective on May 1, 1974. Premised on the policy that “formation of public policy and decisions is public business,” the Act required meetings of governing bodies to be open to the public. The chairman of the Judicial Standards Commission requested the Attorney General to prepare an opinion regarding whether the Act applied to meetings “where the
conduct of a judicial officer is being investigated.” On January 6, 1978, the Attorney
General replied that the Act repealed prior conflicting statutes, including the statutes
making the Commission’s proceedings confidential, and, therefore, that the Commission’s
hearings were governed by the Act.4

THE ADOPTION OF THE “JUDICIAL CANONS” AND THE
FIRST CODE OF JUDICIAL CONDUCT

On July 8, 1974, the Tennessee Supreme Court adopted Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 43, the first
formal code of principles governing the conduct of judges in Tennessee. These canons were
phrased in aspirational, as opposed to proscriptive, terms. While they contained no process
or mechanism for their enforcement, Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 43, Section 31 empowered the
Judicial Standards Commission to “issue opinions as to whether certain conduct does or
does not violate a particular canon or canons.”
On December 2, 1974, the Tennessee Supreme Court replaced the Judicial Canons
which were only six months old with the Code of Judicial Conduct patterned after the Model
Code of Judicial Conduct adopted by the American Bar Association in 1972. Like the earlier
Judicial Canons, the Code of Judicial Conduct that appeared in Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 43 did not
contain an enforcement procedure but empowered the Judicial Standards Commission to
“issue opinions as to whether certain conduct does or does not violate a particular canon
or canons.”
4Op. Tenn. Att’y Gen. 78-4, 1978 WL 26946 (Jan. 6, 1978).

THE PROCEEDINGS INVOLVING JUDGE CHARLES GALBREATH
Following the creation of the Judicial Standards Commission, the first public
proceeding to remove a judge from office took place in 1978. It involved Judge Charles
Galbreath, a member of the Court of Criminal Appeals. This proceeding highlighted the
substantive and procedural shortcomings in the statutes creating the Commission and
defining its procedures.
The Commission eventually identified seven grounds for Judge Galbreath’s removal
from office. These grounds included (1) his 1976 letter on official stationery reprinted in
the Hustler magazine discussing his preferred sex acts in vulgar, colloquial terms,(2) his
1977 arrest in Columbus, Ohio,(3) his 1977 press conference criticizing a “sting” conducted
by the Nashville Police Department,(4) his decision to permit his law clerk to engage in the
part-time practice of law,(5) the manner in which he prepared opinions and worked with
his colleagues on the Court of Criminal Appeals,(6) his derogatory public statements
regarding the Commission, and (7) his alleged breach of a privately negotiated agreement
to resign in return for the Commission’s agreement to drop the charges against him.
Because of the Attorney General’s January 6, 1978 opinion regarding the application
of the Sunshine Law to the Commission, the Commission held a public hearing from March
8-10, 1978 regarding Judge Galbreath. At the conclusion of this hearing, the Commission
voted unanimously to recommend that Judge Galbreath be removed from office on all seven
grounds included in its preliminary findings. The Commission then forwarded the record
of its proceedings and its findings to the Lieutenant Governor and the Speaker of the House
of Representatives.

The Senate took up the Special Committee’s report on April 26, 1978. Following a debate, the Senate decided to vote on only two of the specific grounds relied upon by the Judicial Standards Commission. By a vote of 18-4-1, the Senate determined that Judge Galbreath should be removed based on his letter to the Hustler. Then, by a vote of 18-11-2, the Senate voted to remove Judge
Galbreath based on his public characterization of the members of the Judicial Standards Commission as “sons of bitches.” These results were four votes short of the number required to remove Judge Galbreath from office because Article VI,§ 6 of the Constitution of Tennessee requires a super-majority vote of two-thirds of the members of each chamber.

The House of Representatives never voted on Judge Galbreath’s removal.

On April 27, 1978, the Senate and House of Representatives separately passed Senate
Resolution 102 and House Resolution 210 censuring Judge Galbreath on the ground that his conduct “flouted the letter and spirit of the Code of Judicial Conduct.” Shortly thereafter, Judge Galbreath announced his resignation from the Court of Criminal Appeals and his intention to run for a seat in the General Assembly. When he stepped down, Judge Galbreath held a “derobing” ceremony in the courtroom of the Supreme Court Building in
Nashville.

DO YOU A JUDGE GALBRAITH??? IF SO REPORT HER/HIM!!

THE 1978 SUNSHINE LAW AMENDMENTS
The proceedings involving Judge Galbreath had called into question the application of the Sunshine Law to the Judicial Standards Commission. In response, Senator Victor Ashe and Representative Tom Jensen introduced legislation to require the Commission to comply with the Sunshine Law and to strip away the confidentiality of the complaints and the Commission’s Proceedings. However, a majority of legislators decided that it would be appropriate to maintain confidentiality up to the point when the Commission sends its formal recommendations to the General Assembly.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives eventually approved a conference committee report reflecting this decision.6 This legislation provided (1) that all complaints, preliminary investigations, and related notices were “privileged;”(2) that no person could be held civilly liable for testimony given to the Commission; and (3) that all proceedings,
testimony, and evidence presented to the Commission was “privileged.” The Act removed
two of the three references to the confidentiality of the Commission’s proceedings but retained the requirement of confidentiality prior to the Commission’s recommendation to the General Assembly.

6Act of Apr. 26, 1978, ch. 946, 1978 Tenn. Pub. Acts 1494. The Governor permitted the
legislation to become law without his signature.

1979 – PRESENT

THE CREATION OF THE COURT OF THE JUDICIARY IN 1979
The shortcomings in existing law that were brought to light during the 1978
proceedings involving Judge Galbreath also prompted the General Assembly, with the
approval of the Tennessee Supreme Court, to prepare new legislation pertaining to judicial
oversight. The purposes of this legislation were to replace the Judicial Standards
Commission statutes that had been adopted in 1971 and to provide the General Assembly
with a more efficient way to exercise its removal power under Article VI, Section 6.

I hope you find this enlightening - it is to me!
