Robert Echols Receives Rutherford Award from Nashville Bar Foundation

December 6, 2010

Nashville, Tenn. (December 6, 2010) – At its recent annual black tie dinner, the Nashville Bar Foundation presented a plaque representing the David C. Rutherford Award to the Hon. Robert L. Echols, former U.S. District Judge for the Middle District of Tennessee. Echols joined the law firm of Bass, Berry & Sims PLC following his retirement from the bench in July.

The Rutherford Award is given to a Nashville Bar Foundation Fellow who exemplifies the memory and ideals of Nashville lawyer David Rutherford, who represented the highest standards of "professionalism, charitable contribution in the legal field and in the community as a whole, and the spirit of collegiality among bench and bar."

"I am honored to receive this award, especially in memory of David Rutherford who was a fine attorney and friend, loved the practice of law, and made so many selfless contributions to the Nashville Bar Association," said Echols. "To be recognized along side of the former recipients for the qualities outlined in the award is very humbling."

This is only the third time that the award has been given. The award was established and first presented in 2007 to David Rutherford posthumously, while the second award was given in 2008 to retired Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Frank F. Drowota, III.
