Carroll L. Ross, Circuit Court Judge,
Part III, of the 10th Judicial District has announced that he will
retire in August of 2014 at the end of his present term of office.
The 10th Judicial District includes four counties: Bradley, McMinn,
Monroe, and Polk.
Judge Ross was appointed to his
judicial position by Gov. Don Sundquist in 1996 to fill the unexpired
term of the late Judge Mayo Mashburn, and he has served in that
capacity since that date.
"I certainly owe a deep debt of
gratitude to Gov. Don Sundquist for the confidence he showed in me
when he originally appointed me to this position," Ross said. "I also owe a debt of gratitude to the Republican Party and to
the good people of the 10th Judicial District, who have continued to
elect me to this position since my original appointment."
Judge Ross was re-elected to his
current position in 1998 and in 2006. In his judicial capacity, he
has been primarily responsible for handling the criminal docket with
Judge Amy Reedy.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Judge
Reedy for these past several years, and, with her assistance, the
10th Judicial District has one of the most current dockets in the
entire state," Ross said. "None of this would have been
possible without the cooperation and hard work of Jerry N. Estes and
R. Steven Bebb, the two district attorneys general who have so ably
served the people of this district during my tenure in office."
