The Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct has issued a public reprimand to Judge James McKenzie of Rhea County.

Judge McKenzie’s reprimand is the result of his conduct in two incidents in late 2012, one concerning comments made regarding an attorney appearing in Judge McKenzie’s courtroom and another regarding comments the judge made in the presence of a courtroom employee’s spouse and others outside the courtroom.
