KNOXVILLE, Tenn -- Governer Phil Bredesen says he is doing what he can to avoid more lawsuits like the sunshine trial here in Knoxville.
Gov. Bredesen says a newly created ombudsman position will help handle disputes about public records.
After this week's guilty verdict, Gov. Bredesen says he will even consider expanding those responsibilities.
