Tennessee court advisory commission forced to livestream Friday meeting



(The Center Square) – The Tennessee Advisory Commission on Rules of Practice and Procedure will livestream its 9 a.m. Friday quarterly meeting in compliance with a federal court order to make the meetings public.

The meetings have been forced open after a March 2023 preliminary injunction in a lawsuit from The Center Square Vice President of News and Content Dan McCaleb.

McCaleb is represented by the Liberty Justice Center.

The group also held a livestream of its December meeting, where it discussed the streamlining of the rules for filing motions in appellate court, the rules for experts in court and the rules for appealing based on a perceived area in the court’s finding of fact.

McCaleb sued on First Amendment grounds to open the meetings, where the committee discusses court rule changes that it will recommend the Tennessee General Assembly pass.

Tennessee Administrator of Courts Director Michelle Long and the department have continued to fight the lawsuit through the Tennessee Attorney General’s office in an attempt to close the meetings.
