In his First Amended Complaint, in which plaintiff Owens joined, Johnson claims that on August 28, 1990, he was served with an arrest warrant naming him as the putative father of an illegitimate child. Ed.2d 555 (1988) (demotion and discharge of court employee is an administrative decision and not “a judicial act”), or for an action that is administrative in nature and that does not alter the rights and liabilities of the parties, Morrison v. This court also has held that the initiation of accusatory processes, such as criminal prosecutions or civil contempt proceedings, is a non-judicial act that may subject a judge to liability. The plaintiffs contend that the district court erred in granting Turner judicial immunity because some of the juvenile court's employees under Turner's supervision initiated criminal and civil contempt proceedings on behalf of the Child Support Bureau. Johnson claims that the warrant was signed, pursuant to Tenn. § 36-2-103(e), by defendant Herbert Lane, a referee of the juvenile court, and the “Officer's Return” indicating execution was signed by defendant Craig, the juvenile court bailiff. In essence, plaintiffs assert that Judge Turner's involvement in the process of hiring Child Support Bureau personnel and his appointment of the Bureau's Chief Administrative Officer, with whom he has “coexistent” authority over personnel matters, places the judge in the position of overseeing the “initiation of accusatory proceedings,” which is a prosecutorial and not a judicial function, and he, therefore, is not entitled to judicial immunity. These requirements have been construed to prohibit such advisory opinions. Craig, Veronica Coleman, William Moore, Harold Horne. Raines, Shelby County Attorney's Office, Memphis, TN, Peter M. The State of Tennessee was permitted to intervene as a defendant. STATEMENT OF THE CASE AND FACTSAt various times in the fall of 1991, these four plaintiffs filed three separate complaints pursuant to 42 U. The cases were eventually consolidated in the district court. The Shelby County Juvenile Court Defendant Kenneth Turner, at all times relevant to this case, was the judge of the Shelby County Juvenile Court. Judge Turner had statutory authority to appoint referees, Tenn. § 37-1-107(a), who had the powers of a trial judge and the same authority as the juvenile court judge to issue process; the referees' orders became final only after review by the judge. Judge Turner is responsible for appointing the chief administrative officer and for giving final approval to the hiring of employees of the Child Support Bureau, but he has no hands-on day-to-day involvement with these operations.
He coordinates the day-to-day operations in law enforcement and oversees all of its divisions, including, Patrol/Patrol Support Services; Courts Services/Civil Process/Levy Squad; Detectives including Homicide, Robbery, Sex Crimes, Fugitive, and Narcotics; Homeland Security; the Bureau of Professional Standards & Integrity ("BPSI"); the Training Academy; Volunteer Services; Metro Alarm; Patrol Reserves; Crime Prevention; SWAT/Bomb; RIDD and Internal Audits.
