This is a list of the 95 counties in the State of Tennessee. As of 2010, Shelby County was both Tennessee's most populous county, with 927,644 residents, and the largest county in area, covering an area of 755 sq mi (1,955 km The center of population pinpoints the location at which the population of the state, as placed on a map of the state where they reside, would balance out the map.A county is a local level of government smaller than a state and typically larger than a city or town, in a U.

Ed.2d 555 (1988) (demotion and discharge of court employee is an administrative decision and not “a judicial act”), or for an action that is administrative in nature and that does not alter the rights and liabilities of the parties, Morrison v. This court also has held that the initiation of accusatory processes, such as criminal prosecutions or civil contempt proceedings, is a non-judicial act that may subject a judge to liability. The plaintiffs contend that the district court erred in granting Turner judicial immunity because some of the juvenile court's employees under Turner's supervision initiated criminal and civil contempt proceedings on behalf of the Child Support Bureau. Johnson claims that the warrant was signed, pursuant to Tenn. § 36-2-103(e), by defendant Herbert Lane, a referee of the juvenile court, and the “Officer's Return” indicating execution was signed by defendant Craig, the juvenile court bailiff. In essence, plaintiffs assert that Judge Turner's involvement in the process of hiring Child Support Bureau personnel and his appointment of the Bureau's Chief Administrative Officer, with whom he has “coexistent” authority over personnel matters, places the judge in the position of overseeing the “initiation of accusatory proceedings,” which is a prosecutorial and not a judicial function, and he, therefore, is not entitled to judicial immunity.

Hansom, Memphis, TN, for Defendant-Appellee Kenneth Austin Turner. Yacuzzo (argued), Michelle Mc Griff (briefed), Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division, Nashville, TN, for Intervenor-Appellee State of Tennessee. The power to declare the rights of individuals and to measure the authority of governments, this Court said 90 years ago, “is legitimate only in the last resort, and as a necessity in the determination of real, earnest, and vital controversy.” Otherwise the power “is not judicial ․ in the sense in which judicial power is granted by the Constitution to the courts of the United States.”As an incident to the elaboration of this bedrock requirement, this Court has always required that a litigant have “standing” to challenge the action sought to be adjudicated in the lawsuit. The first is whether the plaintiff has shown, “at an irreducible minimum,” some actual or threatened injury resulting from the putatively illegal action.

Defendant Craig was a bailiff of the juvenile court. Plaintiffs Johnson and Owens The facts surrounding plaintiff Johnson's paternity proceeding are disputed. However, recently, in Barnes, we explained that the exception to absolute immunity, when a judge engages in a purely prosecutorial function, is a narrow one; and, even if the judge encroaches upon prosecutorial functions, the broad shield of absolute immunity is not automatically overcome. We apply the foregoing principles to the plaintiffs' contention that defendant Turner and the juvenile court referees engaged in non-judicial acts.
