Judge Charles Susano Profiled by the American Bar Association

September 22, 2011

Court of Appeals Judge Charles Susano was profiled in an attorney spotlight article on the American Bar Association's website. 

Below is an excerpt from the article:

In the early 1990s, two significant changes occurred in the life of Judge Charles Susano. In 1992, the then-56 year old attorney from Knoxville, Tennessee broke his back at the fifth thoracic vertebra in a fall while sleepwalking. Following intensive rehabilitative therapy at Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta, Georgia he returned to the practice of law in December 1992.  The second change occurred in March 1994 when he was appointed to the twelve-member Court of Appeals of Tennessee.  He received the endorsement of the people of his state later that year by winning his retention election. Since that time, he has won two more retention elections, culminating in what will be 20 years of service on the bench at the end of his current term in 2014.
