Juan G. Villasenor applies for seat on Court of Appeals

Tennessean: 40 percent of applicants are minorities

Assistant Attorney General Juan G. Villasenor has applied for the Court of Appeals seat opened by the death of Judge William Bryan Cain. This is Villasenor's second application this year (story here), with the previous appointment going to Andy Bennett (story here).

Governor Bredesen, who picks from the top three applicants as chosen by a state panel, has expressed frustration in the past for the panel's failure to include a minority in the finalists presented to him (stories here and here).

Among the twenty candidates this time around, eight are minorities, according to the Tennessean (story here).
