A couple of new district judges
Here and here are a couple of press releases regarding the appointment of a couple of new district judges. The governor appointed Steven Montgomery district judge in the Sixth District (covering Miami, Linn, and Bourbon Counties). In Wyandotte County, Kathleen Lynch will fill the vacancy created by the death of Judge Cordell Meeks. I note that Ms. Lynch was the private defense counsel member of the Kansas Sentencing Commission, so I suppose there will be a vacancy on that body if any private counsel are interested (I never have understood how much private defense work a person has to do to qualify for that position).
