OMG…Judge Blackwood Recused In 3 Christian-Newsom Cases


Holy good god!!!

Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals in Knoxville has recused Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood!!!!

Thursday, the court found that the trial court had erred in denying the motion for recusal, saying there was a “reasonable basis” for questioning Judge Blackwood impartiality in the case.
Thank you God for looking after these victims and families!!!!

    It looks like a new judge will be appointed to decide whether to order new trials for those three defendants. However, the retrial for Vanessa Coleman is apparently still on. The Knox County District Attorney General acknowledged Baumgartner was impaired during Coleman’s trial.

    Is Blackwood still going to preside over the retrial for Coleman?

    I had to read this three times thinking I misread it. God does work in mysterious ways. This is wonderful news but strange, down to the wire.

    Wowzers! Thank you for the wonderful news! I now am on pins and needles to find out if this includes Ms. Nessa!

    Donchais, strike that last sentence! I just realized the decision didn’t include Ms. Nessa.

    I am hoping and praying a new judge will sign off on the cases as 13th juror. The Christian’s and Newsom’s deserve no less and those 3 I will not deign to name do not deserve new trials.
