Shelby County Commission recommends people to be 'special master'

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Attorneys for the Shelby County Commission have asked a judge to appoint what is known as a "special master" to oversee the merger of Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools.

The commission suggests several people for the position, including Christine Richards of FedEx and former Shelby County Circuit Court Judge George Brown.

Just last night, the Unified School Board voted against filing a motion to ask for a special master.
