MORRISTOWN, Tenn. -

Gov. Bill Haslam will administer the oath of office Tuesday to the state's newest Court of Appeals judge, Thomas R. Frierson II.        

Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Gary R. Wade will also be at the ceremony in Morristown.      

Haslam appointed Frierson in February to fill the seat left vacant when Judge Herschel P. Franks retired last year. Frierson has since 1996 been a chancellor in the Third Judicial District, which is composed of Greene, Hamblen, Hancock and Hawkins counties.
