Coleman may appeal TNInvestco ruling

[Updated 11:29 a.m.] A story from The Associated Press published today in the Knoxville News Sentinel says Franklin VC Larry Coleman may appeal Chancellor Russell Perkins' ruling against him in his effort to get access to State documents detailing the process by which TNInvestco winning firms were chosen by ECD Commissioner Matt Kisber and Revenue Commissioner Reagan Farr. Mark Drury, responding for the commissioners, told VNC the State would have no comment on Coleman's reported plans to appeal. A representative of Coleman confirmed for VNC that Coleman intends to appeal. Such an appeal cannot be filed until after Chancellor Perkins issues his actual order in the case, which is being prepared by attorneys. That order is not likely to come until next week.
