Tennessee: Court throws out defamation suit by recalled Nashville former City Councilwoman
Nashville former Councilwoman Pam Murray, who is the only person to lose a recall in Nashville history, lost a defamation suit filed against a number of opponents, including her successor Jamie Hollin, who beat her in the 2009 recall. h
The Tennesse court of appeals upheld a lower court ruling, which threw out the charges. The petitioners claimed that Murray actually lived in Detroit working for a methadone clinic. After Hollin didn't run for reelection in 2011, Murray ran and lost.
