Metro Council To Replace Casey Moreland

Posted at 12:59 PM, Apr 03, 2017

The Metro City Council is having to deal with a problem that they haven’t had to handle since 2011: how to replace a judge at the Justice A.A. Birch building.

Casey Moreland resigned Friday after a federal magistrate ruled that there is probable cause in a public corruption case against him.

Monday was business as usual at the Birch building; however, other General Sessions judges are having to take on Moreland's workload.

Once the vacancy is announced Tuesday night by Vice Mayor David Briley, people can submit applications.

A special election will take place within Metro Council on May 16. That person will take Moreland’s place until the 2018 election.
