The View

The Tennessee circuit court judge  chaged with ethics violations arising out of a visit to the home of a party in a parenting dispute has filed an answer denying any misconduct.

The answer asserts that the visit was done with the consent of the self-represented parties and was in aid of making an informed decision on the merits.

Further, the answer contends that a judge has inherent authority to conduct such a view.
