Interim city judge appointed for Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Attorney George McCoin has been appointed to serve as Cleveland’s interim city judge until early September, filling the role of the late Judge Bill Moss, who was found shot to death in the late morning hours of July 14.

The Cleveland City Council voted 6-0 to appoint McCoin during a special meeting today.

“I accepted the appointment to give the city the opportunity to make a proper selection for the next city judge,” said McCoin, who said he will not seek to serve in the post beyond the interim period.

The city will accept applications for the position of municipal court judge until 10 a.m. on Aug. 15.

The Cleveland City Council plans to vote on an appointee on Aug. 25, who will be sworn in on Sept. 8. The term of appointment is two years.
