A reader alerts us that Blount County Circuit Court Clerk Tom Hatcher will appear before Blount County Judge Mike Meares on Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. to discuss discrepancies in statistical court reporting between Blount County and the State of Tennessee.

Hatcher reportedly provided erroneous information to Blount County Judge W. Dale Young, which was later used in a letter to the editor published in a local newspaper. The letter to the editor, dated April 27 from Young, charged that there was a significant "backlog" of cases before Judge Mike Meares. Later, it was discovered that some of those cases had been closed but, according to Hatcher, were "lost in the mail."

Should be interesting.
