NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Supreme Court has appointed former Federal Communications Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate as director of the Administrative Office of the Courts.

Tate began her professional career in Tennessee state government and served as assistant legal counsel and senior policy adviser to two former Tennessee governors.

She has also served as both chair and director of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority, led the health facilities commission and was a director at Vanderbilt University Institute of Public Policy.

She was also president of the Court Appointed Special Advocates board.

Tate will join the Administrative Office of the Courts this week. Her predecessor, Bill Young, was appointed Associate Chief Deputy Attorney General late last year.
