The Tennessee Constitution’s separation-of-powers provision signifies that the legislative, executive, and judicial branches, while to a degree interdependent, remain independent and co-equal. In particular, the Tennessee Supreme Court has echoed that judiciary independence “ought to be anxiously preserved unimpaired; not on account of the individuals who may happen to be judges—they are nothing—but on account of the security of life, liberty, and the property of the citizen.” Yet, the time-tested concept of judicial independence has again become the subject of public debate. In this roundtable discussion, our distinguished panelists will provide present-day insights of judicial independence in the shadows of our separation-of-powers history.
