Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association Recognizes Donald Capparella

At its 2018 annual convention in Memphis, the Tennessee Trial Lawyers’ Association recognized Donald Capparella for his advocacy.  Capparella was counsel of record for Dedmon v. Steelmanthe 2017 Tennessee Supreme Court case that preserved the “collateral source rule.”  The rule helps ensure that injured people can recover the full value of the medical bills they are charged.

The TTLA works to protect the civil justice system while advocating for accountability and the rights of all citizens. It does that by upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States, advancing the science of jurisprudence, promoting the administration of justice for the public good, and upholding the honor and dignity of the profession of law.

Donald is a long time member of the TTLA . For the 2018-2019 year, he will serve as editor of the Association’s magazine.

TBA Names Connie Clark Recipient of Drowota Award; Behm Quoted on Selection

Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Connie Clark has been named the recipient of the Tennessee Bar Association’s prestigious Justice Frank F. Drowota III Award.  It is the organization’s highest honor for service to the judiciary. The award was announced via a Tennessee Bar Association press release.

In naming her as the honoree, the TBA noted specifically Justice Clark’s implementation of the Access to Justice Commissions’s first-ever strategic plan and the creation of the Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance.

DPBC’s Margaret L. Behm, who served as the first chair of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission, was quoted on Justice Clark’s selection. “No one in Tennessee knows more about the Tennessee judicial system than Justice Clark, Her entire professional life has been devoted to the service of others and the promotion of the rule of law.”

Justice Clark will accept the award during the TBA’s annual convention in June.

Behm Joins Panel Discussion at RGB Film Screening

Margaret L. Behm was a featured panelist at the Belcourt Theatre’s recent screening of RGB. The film chronicles the life and legacy of pioneering U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Behm joined Judge Aleta Trauger (U.S. District Judge for the Middle District, Tennessee) and Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Angie Blackshear Dalton in a post-screening discussion at the sold-out event, discussing their perceptions of the film in light of their personal and professional experiences in the legal profession.
