11:15 MORNING UPDATE: Williams among 3 picked to fill Lovelace vacancy

BURKESVILLE — The Judicial Nominating Commission, led by Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton Jr., met today in Burkesville to choose three nominees to fill the vacant Circuit Court judgeship in the 40th Judicial Circuit. The 40th Circuit consists of Clinton, Cumberland and Monroe counties. The judicial vacancy was created by the death of Circuit Judge Eddie C. Lovelace on Sept. 17, 2012.


These three attorneys, all of whom reside in Burkesville, have been named as nominees to fill the vacancy:


Angela M. Capps. Capps is serving as the public defender for Clinton County. She holds a juris doctor from the Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law.


Stephen Douglas Hurt. Hurt is serving as a senior judge after retiring as a district judge in 2009. He earned a juris doctor from the Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law.


David L. Williams. Williams is president of the Kentucky State Senate. He represents Senate District 16. He earned a juris doctor from the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law.

The person appointed to fill this vacancy will serve the two years remaining in the term of the late Judge Lovelace. If the appointee wishes to retain this seat, he or she must run for office in the next regularly scheduled election for circuit judges in 2014.
